In the news this week, a family in Eugene, Oregon, pulled together to start a new business. And what makes this business unique? They only hire felons. The business, in its infancy, is a type of mobile food cart that serves breakfast to residents in Eugene, Oregon. This family, with a member who has a felony conviction, understood the impact a conviction has on the felon’s ability to find stable work. As a result, and as reported by the KVAL.com news website, the family purchases mobile food carts and a business was born. While this is a limited business for this family, in the area of Eugene only – the family is hopeful they can buy more and more mobile food karts and expand the business to help other felons find stable employment.
If you are looking for work in your area, this type of job may be a position you’ll want to consider. While there are many Craigslist part time jobs found in food service, your best work opportunity may come if you can pull the resources together to create a mobile food kart business of your own. Even better, hiring other convicted felons may be one of the most rewarding aspects of your business. Even if you are unfamiliar with the dynamics of food service, you may find this is a a rewarding career that starts a family business that will be passed on for generations.
When you think about changing technology, it is not uncommon to hear about jobs being minimized over time. But, food service and food preparation will never go away. As a result, more and more people with convictions are finding they can pursue these types of jobs with relative ease and long term stability. Never let your felony conviction hold you back from pursuing jobs in mobile food karts and even consider expanding your work experience into careers that offer food manufacturing jobs, well after you’ve left the start at the food kart business.
