[ARCHIVED] New Castle County Government Center Café to Reopen with New Operators

NEW CASTLE, Del. – The new operators of the New Castle County Government Center café, Mac’s Snacks and J&J Corporate Café, and County Executive Tom Gordon are scheduled to hold a grand opening at noon Monday, September 21.

“We’re optimistic with the opening of the new café,” County Executive Gordon said. “The menu looks good, and it gives our employees a convenient place to buy healthy, fresh food. In addition, this new partnership we have with the Delaware Division for the Visually Impaired is a beautiful way to reopen the café.”

Mac’s Snacks Proprietor Anthony Maczynski is a blind operator with the Delaware Division for the Visually Impaired Business Enterprise Program. Mr. Maczynski said the joint venture would be a win in a number of ways.

“For the Division for the Visually Impaired and the Blind Entrepreneurs Program, their expressed goal is to provide all the assets and tools necessary for a blind or visually impaired person to be productive and own a business,” Mr. Maczynski said. “In this case, that’s my baby. It’s a win for me; it’s a win for the disabled community. It’s also employment. It’s good for the economy. It’s good for the people.

“It’s also a win for New Castle County Government. We all know that governments have to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act and, in this case, thanks to Executive Gordon, it’s happening,” he added. “I want to express my gratitude to him and all of his staff for that.”

Rob Schmidlkofer, director of Delaware’s Business Enterprise Program, helps blind entrepreneurs open up businesses. He said this was the first time the Division for the Visually impaired would open a business in a New Castle County facility.

J&J Corporate Café, headed by Ulysses James, was contracted by Mac’s Snacks to run the daily operations at the café.

The café is on the second floor of the New Castle County Government Center at 87 Reads Way, New Castle DE 19720.
