Chris’s Coffee and Custard celebrates its grand opening in Roanoke

ROANOKE, Va. – A new coffee shop in the Star City is creating opportunities one cup at a time.

Chris’s Coffee and Custard held a ribbon ceremony Saturday to celebrate its grand opening.

Chris and his mom Beth have worked over the years to turn it into a cafe with a purpose.

She created the business to employ and train people with special abilities.

Her vision is to have a place where they can feel comfortable and feel like part of the community.

“This is important to me because I want to work for my friends, my family and my soccer team… That’s my dream job I love,” said Chris.

Chris says anyone who wants to start their own business just needs to have courage to make it happen.
