“80% of people with a disability do not work! While the unemployment rate in the total population is under 4%, it is over 40% for employable people with disabilities.”, said Kristi Cronnelly, co-founder of OMG! Mongolian Grill. “We want to do something tangible to assist developmentally disabled people find jobs.”, she added.

 

OMG! Mongolian Grill opened this spring in Uptown Butte and has employed several employees with developmental disabilities.

 

“The benefits of hiring people with limited abilities are enormous. They are hard working, loyal, and eager to please. Once you find a good fit, you will have a great long-term employee! In addition, there are some financial benefits that come with staffing our business with people who are in this category in the way of tax credits and other incentives”, said OMG! Co-founder, Tom Cronnelly. “Often, the employee has a job coach that helps them be successful. We saw other employers such as Tony Olson from Butte Brewing Company and the Gorman’s at McDonald’s benefiting from these loyal employees and made it part of our business plan to follow their lead. We could not be happier with our team!”

 

The Cronnelly’s decided to reach out to stakeholders in the disabled community to pool resources together with a goal of getting more people with disabilities employed and supporting those organizations with the same goal. Some of the event partners include: Silver Bow Developmental Disability Counsel, Montana Independent Living Project, BSW, Inc., Family Outreach, The Farm in the Dell Foundation, Dish-ability, A.W.A.R.E, Butte Job Service, State of MT Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, and Butte-Silver Bow Department of Disability Services.

 

“It was easy for us to rally behind this cause after meeting employable people with so much potential.”, Tom Cronnelly said.
