Alisha envisioned owning and running a restaurant in her community. Being a resident of Hubbard’s and with a commitment to her community, Alisha was excited and motivated about her plans. She knew the perfect location for her restaurant. Alisha wanted to purchase a well-known Diner in Hubbard’s that was for sale. She imagined running her restaurant in a central location, a spot that the community of Hubbard’s was familiar with. She wanted to support her local community, so this location was ideal. Alisha wanted to create a menu that would include something for everyone, be it a dish that was tried and true or something unique and new.

With a lot of experience working in a kitchen, both as a cook and in a management role, she had the essential tools and a good foundation to help her start in her business pursuit.
Although she had the essential skills needed for running a kitchen, Alisha had not owned a business before. She came to Nova Scotia works Employment Solutions in pursuit of support of the Self Employment Benefits Program to help her gain these skills. She enrolled and was accepted into the program. From the beginning, Alisha was optimistic, motivated, and ambitious. She took full advantage of the services offered in the SEB program, attending more than the required number of workshops, meetings with her business counsellor and networking with likeminded businesspeople. Along with the program, Alisha benefited from other community resources that were at her disposal. She attended networking functions, fundraisers, and food expos. Alisha gained insight, skills and explored many avenues to help with her ideas. She was determined to succeed in the plan she envisioned for her restaurant.
Succeed she did. Today the Savary Plate Eatery and Pizzeria has become a fast favorite to many people from local residence to tourists. The business is thriving with an extensive menu to please many taste buds. It is a busy spot with great food and a friendly atmosphere. Alisha has employed a good team of Staff who work hard to ensure customer satisfaction.

Ben registered with Nova Scotia Works Employment Solutions in March 2020 with a clear goal to find employment with is current skill set, preferably in a deli or kitchen setting making food. Ben had a keen interest, as well as experience in food prep. His resume includes volunteer work through past school placements and other community-based organizations. Ben gained skills through his training in reception, landscaping, maintenance, and woodwork. Ben was also hopeful to find employment in his local nearby community of Chester.
Soon after registering with Employment Solutions Society Ben met with Job Developer Lisa to work in collaboration with Bens Case Manager. Due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions staff were working from, we had to meet over video chat and brainstorm on his employment goals for the future. This caused no deterrence for Ben. With support of the Job Developer, Ben narrowed down a few employers in his area he would like to work for. When restrictions began to ease, Ben applied for and then accepted a position with a local grocery store. Having completed a school placement there in the past, Ben was eager and excited to get started in his new role in a food prep position. He looked for to (and still does) getting up for his early morning shifts.
The employer was able to access funding through the Federal budget, The Opportunity Fund wage subsidy. The subsidy is given to assist with the cost of hiring a new employee. It was evident that this employer would be a good match. Through Bens experience in the past, he had learned important skills and had a good experience. The employer was very welcoming again and looked forward to hiring ben. They seen his potential and were keen on helping him to succeed in his role. The employer was, mindful of Bens learning style as well. Ben was tied to a mentor he already knew, assisting him in learning the new job. He started by working on recipes and getting confident in his abilities before, moving on to the next task given.
Ben has been successfully employed in his role for five months at the grocery store doing something he enjoys. He is working in his community with people who are welcoming and inclusive. He continues to do a great job, growing his skill set, gaining confidence, and taking pride in his work. This is a true success story.
