Cups of Joy is a faith-based business, JOY standing for Jesus, Others, Yourself. Our mission is to be an outreach to the community by building relationships and creating a warm and welcoming environment. We are always quick to tell customers to make themselves at home because we want them to know that we are here for them in ways that are above and beyond a cup of coffee.


A New Chapter

Cups of Joy owner Mary Narron had the dream of opening a local coffee shop in her hometown for a long time, and though she wasn't always sure it was possible, she never gave up on the pursuit because for her, Cups of Joy was more than a business - it was a calling. 

In March of 2024, Mary sold Cups of Joy to Chris and Tanya Dunn, which began a new chapter in that calling. The heart of the coffee shop is the same, but the

"passing of the beans" has brought an updated seating area, some COJ merchandise and some exciting opportunities on the horizon.

The COJ team is looking forward to the exciting possibilities that lie ahead as we serve the Wilson community!


One of the most important things for both Mary and Olivia was for the shop to have a community focus. Cups of Joy features local artists, has a "Pay-It-Forward" Initiative, where patrons can buy a cup of coffee for another customer, and offers discounts to First Responders.


Additionally, we also collect cash tips to assist when we are aware of a need in the community. These are just a few ways that we practice part of our philosophy: Coffee and Community.
