A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at “The Table” in Wauseon on Thursday, October 27th. located at 206 North Fulton Street, the restaurant is located at what used to be Sully’s Bistro.
The location was purchased by Triangular Processing Inc. in order to help give those with disabilities an opportunity for meaningful work.
TPI was created by parents of children with disabilities, with this year being the organizations 25-year anniversary.
According to Kathy Shaw, previous owners Brian Roth and Scott Sullivan, who also own Sullivan’s Restaurant, were supportive of this project and its ability to be a vocational program.
“They were very instrumental in our conversations and the possibilities this place would be able to bring to everyone,” said Kathy Shaw.
The Table will feature a breakfast and lunch menu as usual and will also see daily specials and appetizers added.
The pizza oven will also continue to be a mainstay as well as Friday night ribs.
The location will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with extended hours on Friday with a close time of 8:00 p.m. Weekend hours will be extended to 4:00 p.m. as of the first weekend in November.
In addition to serving customers, The Table will go far into helping those in our community in need.
“The tag line for The Table is, everyone has a seat. The whole point of this place is to have a community spirit that is welcoming to individuals of all abilities.”
“I think access and inclusion doesn’t just benefit individuals with disabilities, but it presents an opportunity for others to see the value in what all citizens with disabilities are able to bring to the community,” said Kathy Shaw.
