ROLESVILLE, North Carolina (WTVD) —
Whiches on Wheels is Rolesville’s latest sandwich shop. Melissa Towns opened it so her daughter Princess, and people like Princess with autism, might have a job.
“With autism it’s not that easy. They tend to get overwhelmed. They get frustrated and they need help,” Towns stated.
They simply opened and Towns has been bombarded with purposes from people with autism that need to work.
“I was like, ok, I don’t know how I’m going to do it, but I have to make a place for everybody,” stated Towns.
They’re busy at lunch, after which it slows down. But the busier they’re, the extra people Towns can rent.
She defined she is aware of what triggers some with autism, and she or he retains them away from it. And she is aware of what their strengths are, and she or he builds on it.
“We fit them in where they’re comfortable and we allow them to work. If they need to take a break, take a break. It’s ok. If they have a moment, if they get overwhelmed, it’s ok,” she defined.
Her daughter Princess is shy and an introvert. But now she’s the top cashier and greeter at Whiches on Wheels.
The restaurant is situated at 400 Southtown Circle, Rolesville.
