We are very pleased to announce that Courtney Cyr has recently become the sole proprietor of her very own vending machine business, Cyr Vending!
Courtney benefited from a customized employment process that included “discovering” her passion for putting things in other things. Members of her team included her VR Counselor, community case manager from UCP, KFI staff, and her parents. VR was so impressed with Courtney’s business plan, they contributed $1910 to her business start-up! She owns four high-end vending machines, and in January she placed her first machine at the Katahdin Region Higher Education Center, located in East Millinocket. At this location, Courtney is offering healthier snacks and drinks per the request of students and other people who access the building. Courtney has her sights set on placing her three other machines at different locations in the Katahdin region, providing a variety of foods from different kinds of snack foods and drinks to microwaveable entrées. Congratulations, Courtney!
