BEP Snack Shop Vendor's Success Featured in Statewide Broadcast

October 4, 2017

(Atlanta) - Over the summer, Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency (GVRA) was proud to participate in the production of a program called "Great Georgia Jobs", at the invitation of our partners at the Georgia Department of Economic Development.  The segment features the success story of Dale King, an Atlanta businessman who launched his career in snack shop operation and vending through the Business Enterprise Program (BEP).  BEP assists entrepreneurs who are blind in launching small businesses on state or federal property, and Dale operates his store on Capitol Hill, where he is a familiar face to hundreds in the James H. "Sloppy" Floyd Towers. 

See his story and learn more about GVRA's role in workforce development in Georgia. Watch Episode 1 at the link here (http://www.georgia.org/competitive-advantages/workforce-division/great-georgia-jobs/).  You'll see Dale and hear from GVRA Executive Director Sean Casey around 22 minutes into the show.
