Give a teenager a meatball and you feed him for one day. Teach him to run a meatball business and you feed him for a lifetime.
Meatball Heaven is a youth-operated business at Boys & Girls Village, located in the Arcade Mall on Main Street in Bridgeport. It was started in 2016 by Work to Learn, a pre-employment training program that gives young adults the opportunity to gain work experience while showing them how to run a successful business.
Meatball Heaven offers meatballs made fresh daily in a variety of flavor and meat combinations, from traditional Italian to Mexican or Asian. Each meatball is paired with its own sauce and can be served either in a bread cone, a grinder, or over salad, rice or pasta.
The new website, built in WordPress by Web Solutions, features daily specials, a full menu, and many mouthwatering meatball photos.
Web Solutions is currently developing sites for two other youth-run businesses—Do Me a Favor and Design IQ.
