GVRA’s BEP helps visually impaired Georgians become independent business owners in the food service industry, with dependable income and benefits such as health insurance, life insurance, and a sound retirement.
The U.S. Congress created the Business Enterprise Program (BEP) under the Randolph-Sheppard Act of 1936.
The program gives priority to blind vendors who want to operate food service facilities in federal and state government buildings. Counties and cities are not required to participate but some voluntarily work with the BEP.
The program’s training emphasizes food service management, quality customer service, menu planning, health and safety, and merchandising.
