Tar Heel Born and Brewed – and a Living Wage Employer!


The Meantime Coffee Co., located in the campus Y at UNC-Chapel Hill, reinvests the majority of its profits in student scholarships and grants. CEO Carson Moore explains that this philosophy applies to its employees as well. “Everybody that works here is a student with high costs of living and tuition. We want to make sure that we’re giving back to them as well so Orange County Living Wage provided the expertise as to what constitutes a living wage specifically in our area. We feel very fortunate to be able to pay our employees that living wage.”
