Young entrepreneur Camden Myers last summer said his dream was to one day be bigger than Starbucks in the world of coffee. Although Cam’s name isn’t as popular as Starbucks just yet, last week Cam’s Coffee Co. (Cam’s Coffee Creations) took a giant step in that direction when the company launched a crowdfunding campaign, which will fund a new location downtown. 

Cam’s Coffee Co. started out as just something to do on Saturdays but it quickly turned into a thriving business. 

According to his mother, Latasha Barr, Cam, who suffers from a traumatic brain injury (TBI), quickly fell in love with coffee and decided he wanted to help others with disabilities as well by giving them an opportunity to work.

And Cam’s Coffee Co. was born. 

After launching as a pop-up shop for the past few months, Cam’s has called the Green Street Community Center home, but, with the addition of six part-time employees and the growing popularity of the brand, Cam’s has practically outgrown the space located on South Broad Street. 

The goal for the crowdfunding campaign is $18,800 and will cover start-up costs for expansion, including hiring six new employees, a dedicated trainer, and the cost to move to a kiosk downtown. Cam is also hoping to expand the services his business provides for people with disabilities into other locations outside of Forsyth County. 

At the time of publication Cam’s Coffee Co. raised $3,648 from 50 different supporters.
