The owners of “Adam’s Place” in Berea said they are overwhelmed by the number of customers they’ve served this week.

“Adam’s Place” is named after Adam Scott, a 19-year-old who has Downs Syndrome.

His parents, Mark and Shawne, said Adam used to go to work with his dad, but one day Mark’s boss told him he couldn’t bring his son to work with him anymore.

“So it was just killing me,” Mark said. “I'm like I've got to come up with something.”

Mark and Shawne decided to open a restaurant similar to the one where they met and worked in Michigan for 15 years. They say their burger and fries type of menu has been a hit since they opened Saturday.

Even with the success of the restaurant, they say the best part is Adam can go to work with them everyday. He has his own booth by the front door where he watches movies, plays with his cars and greets the customers.

We feel privileged that God allows us to have Adam and be part of his life,” his parents said.

Mark and Shawne said their long term goal for the restaurant is to have a place where everyone feels wanted and accepted.

“ Nobody’s going to look at them or make them feel like they’re different. Because they’re not different,” Mark said.
