Orting residents are about to enjoy another lunch option in their charming downtown – one that will not only satisfy their hunger but also fill their hearts knowing their patronization will lead to better opportunities for Orting youth.
Set to open July 7th the CISO Café will feature a staff comprised entirely of Orting high school students. Students aged 16 and up will volunteer to work at the café (and earn community service hours required for graduation) and, with the help of adult mentors, learn first-hand how business operates, and how to interact with fellow staff, supervisors and customers. On a rotating basis, students will work each and every restaurant position, from cook to dishwasher, server to book keeper, marketing promotion to IT support – including supervisor.
The café is the brainchild of Communities In Schools of Orting director, Kim Farnes, who, along with her husband also owns and operates the Around The Corner café, an Orting favorite for years. “It is our belief that by experiencing all facets of the business, the student will have a better understanding of how their education really DOES prepare them for real life.”
If you want to help get the CISO Café off to a running start why not show up for their grand opening!
When: July 7th at 10:00am
