Rymackees will not only be a cafe and catering business, but we will be a place that offers jobs for some and life long careers for others. Rymackees is proposing to offer management training to two individuals for the term of 18 to 24 months through onsite training. Rymackees will employ the right candidates from our local communities, and these candidates will work side by side for a determined amount of hours weekly in order to learn the inside of starting, managing, and running the business.
These candidates will be chosen from the Welfare to Work Programs, Unemployment Programs, Norwalk Housing Self Sufficiency Program, and through Social Services and other State Government Offices. My purpose is to help individuals living in low income housing districts of Norwalk and surrounding Cities, become totally independent of Government and State assistance.
At the conclusion of the training, the candidate will have the management skills and qualifications to go on to open and manage future Rymackee establishments and accounts. This program will be available for the life of the business, and eventually expand to a full time program opportunity.
I have grown up in a single parent home with three other siblings. We were poor and my mothers' inability to always feed us or pay her bills has motivated me to not only get a job, but to create better opportunities. As a diabetic child and the youngest of four, I often felt limited. For the first 25 years of my life I believed this and in turn made the wrong choices. Having two children of my own now, I vow to always encourage them and tell them daily how wonderful they are. My goal is to help other single parents to stress less, and embrace more.
I see the struggle to have much in low income environments, and to make money fast, which is usually followed by guilt, anger, and low self esteem. I want to encourage as many single parents to teach their children to grow up, embrace education, and start a business that creates jobs for others in similar situations as themselves. Not often enough do we teach our children to start a business, we emphasize getting a job. Just getting a job sounds like limiting oneself. I want to help change that mindset. One way that I know to do that is by teaching from what I did to be better, and by sharing my training in my business. I have always found cooking and sharing food with others to be a release for me, and I want to share that with people like myself. Catering has always been an outlet for me. I know that iron sharpens iron, and I want to do my part.
Rymackees Café & Caterer is committed to doing its part to make Fairfield County a great place to live, work, and raise a family, by creating new jobs throughout each community.
