No Label At The Table is a gluten and dairy free food company whose mission is to employ and provide job skills training to people on the Autism Spectrum. They are based in Carmel, Indiana. Currently, there are 13 employees that are on the spectrum!
The company began when the founder’s son was turning 18 and was transitioning into adulthood. He said he wanted to be a chef in restaurant.
“It would’ve been ‘impossible’. He wasn’t verbal enough to make it through an interview. A restaurant would take a chance on him and he’d be relegated to being the dishwasher. He has an incredible palate, and like most people on the spectrum, an amazing sense of detail and processing skills. A dish-washing position would be a waste of his potential, and most likely, a disaster. All parents want their children to grow to be happy fulfilled people. So with a lot of hope and hustle, we decided to make his dream of being a chef a reality and give other people’s children an opportunity for meaningful work.”
