Tom Landis is a pretty amazing man. He opened Howdy Homemade Ice Cream in University Park, Texas with one goal in mind. He wanted to provide jobs to people with special needs.
But don't think this is a handout. His employees are all trained in everything from food prep to customer service and they reportedly love it.
In two and a half years, Howdy Homemade has had no employee turnover and consistently receives top ratings from customer reviews of their service.
One of my favorite parts is the business philosophy..."People first. Then, food."
Tom once explained, "It's time we broaden our base and look not at where the disabilities are, but the abilities."
I love this man.
