We are pleased to announce the start of a new business opportunity for consumer Jimmy Cinque, who is beginning a career in beekeeping. Mr. Cinque is obtaining several beehives, which he will set up on local farms and at a community garden at Holy Redeemer. Mr. Cinque looks forward to gaining experience as a beekeeper and plans to sell his honey when it is produced.
We began developing this opportunity in response to struggles that Mr. Cinque experienced in his employment as a table cleaner at Temple University’s Cafeteria. We noticed that when Mr. Cinque worked with animals, he was able to demonstrate much more independence than elsewhere. Mr. Cinque expressed repeated interest in beekeeping, so we tried a beekeeping assessment at which he did amazingly well. Mr. Cinque also was surprisingly knowledgeable about the bees.
