Saxbys in Smeal Business Building


Saxbys is more than just coffee. When guests walk into Saxbys, it’s an uplifting environment filled with friendly faces, delicious drinks and exceptional food to fuel the day’s possibilities. Saxbys brews real change in the communities it serves, while nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit in team members who aspire to be changemakers. This is Saxbys’ Founder and CEO Nick Bayer’s mission to “Make Life Better” — brought to life with his very first neighborhood cafe in 2005. Driven by deep-rooted core values and an unwavering commitment to cultivating O.D.D. (outgoing, detail oriented, and disciplined) talent, Saxbys uplifts guests in cafes across nine states, in its Philadelphia-based headquarters and in unique higher-ed partnerships through its Experiential Learning Program, where students earn academic credit to manage all aspects of a Saxbys cafe (yes, they are actually in charge—of the 30+ member team, the financials and community partnerships).

Penn State has entered into a partnership with Philadelphia-based coffee and hospitality company Saxbys to open an exclusively student-run Experiential Learning Cafe in fall 2018 in the Business Building, the Smeal College of Business’ 210,000-square-foot home on the University Park campus.
