Success on a plate for cafe owner
Enterprising cafe worker Janice Vernon was faced with an uncertain future when it looked as if she might lose her dream job, but a year on she is serving up her own success.
Janice had worked for eight years at the Deans and Inveralmond High School community cafes when her boss decided he no longer wanted to be involved in the business. Determined not to lose a role she loved, Janice decided to set up her own business and take on the running of the cafes.
The move coincided with West Lothian Council’s tender for the provision of cafe services to the High School, which meant Janice had to move quickly, and, take on the challenge of submitting a proposal which would secure her future plans.
