New Shelby cafe offers employment for those with special needs

There is a new one-stop-shop for sandwiches, ice cream and acai bowls in Cleveland County.

Special Blendz Cafe recently opened up in Shelby.

Inside, you will find the business is providing space for people with special needs.

Special Blendz, in Shelby, is hiring those who have disabilities.

Special Blendz Cafe is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m.

They hope to add a smoothie bar soon, and if you buy a shirt or other merchandise, those profits go to their employees.

The hope is to build a few more cafes in the area and hire more people with disabilities.
