Shayna’s Place and Hugs Greenhouse Hire People of All Abilities

These two local businesses are making an impact on the community

Shayna’s Place at Sylvan Thirty is hiring people of all abilities to bus tables, serve food and run the DJ booth—a nod to the restaurant’s namesake, a musical savant who has Down syndrome and is the cousin of manager Lou Olerio. The sandwich and smoothie shop with roots in Rhode Island features brews from Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters as well as eats like the Bee Nana, a peanut butter, banana and honey sandwich. If this sounds like a fun gig for your loved one, click “Work With Us” on the website to submit a cover letter and résumé.

Same goes for Hugs Greenhouse, the newest project from McKinney sandwich shop Hugs Cafe. Managers Bill Crump and David Shelton are hiring part-time teammates age 18 and older to grow fall and spring flowers; responsibilities include planting, labeling and watering. If your loved one wants to cultivate a green thumb, pick up an application from Hugs Cafe, and find flowers for your own garden at the greenhouse on weekends through Nov. 11.
