Man With Down Syndrome Becomes Youngest Business Owner In His Hometown
May 9, 2016
Blake Pyron was born with Down Syndrome. On May 7, the 20-year-old opened a snow cone shack in Sanger, Texas, becoming the youngest business owner in his hometown.
Blake's dream to open a business of his own started shortly after his high school graduation. Blake worked at a barbeque restaurant for a while and loved every minute of it, but the place was shut down a month after the end of his senior year.
His mother explained that Blake wanted to find a job, but the opportunities in their hometown were limited. So their family got together and thought of Blake's choices. He was interested in snow cones and so it was decided.
Blake's brother helped him come up with creative flavors, like "Hulk" and "Shark Attack." Blake's major role will be in customer service since that is his strength.
His mother hopes that her family's story would inspire more people with children with special needs to stop listening to societies and never put limits on their child.
"You don't know us. You don't know our child, so don't label him. We haven't, and he turned out great," his mother said.
