August 13, 2018

Kayleigh Dixon began her career in the coffee industry as a barista at a local coffee shop in Rapid City while attending college at Black Hills State in South Dakota. She has a passion for espresso and healthy alternatives, and an even bigger passion for serving the people of her community.

Kayleigh met her husband through one of her coffee shop regulars (who just happened to be his dad), and in September of 2014, Kayleigh and Christopher decided to open up their own drive-thru coffee company, DixonAt the beginning of 2018, they were approached by another couple who asked them to partner with them to open Revel Coffee House, their first brick and mortar business.

Kayleigh’s love for serving others started at a young age, and looking back on her life she can see this is the path that was intended for her.
