Pizza Inn Owner Stands Up For Special Needs Staff With “Warning” Sign

After a customer complained to the owner of a Pizza Inn in South Carolina about an employee with autism, she knew exactly what to do: stand up for her staff.Amanda Cartagine owns the restaurant in Greenville and something she’s pretty proud of is that out of her crew of 16 workers, 10 of them have special needs.

So when a customer complained about bad service after asking an employee with autism to refill the lettuce bowl, the manager explained the special circumstances to him, that it wasn’t the employee’s job and that he had been trained to do other things. But the complainer wasn’t satisfied and suggested Catagine hand a “warning sign” to let folks know about her staff, she took the advice and put her own spin on it.

She hung a sign on the restaurant’s door that read “We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and hire all of God’s children.” Cartagine says she wanted to do “something that wasn’t rude but got the point across,” and she nailed it. “If he’s not okay with that, then I’m okay with him not coming back,” she says of the complainer. “That’s a dollar that I don’t need.”
