Wolverhampton man who opened cafe in his home town celebrates a year of living his business dream
A homegrown Black Country entrepreneur who opened a cafe in the neighbourhood he grew up in has celebrated its one-year anniversary with a staff trip to Alton Towers.
Reece Lambert, owner of Reece's Cafe, marked the day of celebration this week with half-price sandwiches and free cheesecake for customers, and also took his staff out to Alton Towers to celebrate their one-year anniversary.
The Wolverhampton lad, who opened the business, his first-ever business in the area he grew up in, shared his delight at the work that has gone into it, one year on.
Reece said: "The day went really well, everyone loved the sandwiches and especially the cheesecakes, which flew out! The cheesecakes are always really popular and sell out all the time.
"There was a nice excitement and buzz around the place, and we were busier than normal and received great support.
"I feel more than blessed to be here a year on. All I have heard is that most businesses fail within that first year period, and so the fact that I've made it and we're still here, people still come here regularly - it is a blessing, and I'm so grateful that I'm still here.
