Rita Beachy - Joshua Cup Macon Georgia

Rita Beachy opened her coffee shop nearly 10 years ago, but she has never tried anything like this. Joshua Cup, at the corner of Orange Street and Washington Avenue in Macon, will be open 24 hours a day from Dec. 13-18. A lot of students drop by Beachy’s shop regularly, and the expanded hours are a way to cater to them, since many of them stay awake all night to study, she said. The shop was named for Joshua, a young leader during biblical times. Beachy and her husband opened the shop to serve the youth community in Macon. They wanted to operate a business that would help sponsor a now-defunct youth center in Macon. Click for article By Jenna Mink Macon Telegraph Dec 04, 2010 Picture credit Woody Marshall/The Telegraph
