Reece Lambert, 27, had a successful first month of business after it officially opened on Sunday September 25.
Having set himself the goal of one day opening his own business, Reece was able to achieve that goal and open his cafe in Old Heath Road, Eastfield – the area he grew up in.
Speaking about the success of his first month in business, he said, “Business has been going very well since day one, if I must say, I really can’t complain about the result so far.
“I’ve had a lot of support from my locals, strangers and so many people – and they all love the food.
“Everybody loves the food, I love the food – that’s the main thing, people love to eat here.
“Now I just have to be consistent and keep working hard.”
Reece has lived in the area all his life and once told the Express and Star that as a young teenager he once asked the shop owner how much it would cost to open a cafe there, and From then on, he made it his goal to one day open this business in this same store.
Fast forward 11 years, and he’s now achieved that goal, but doesn’t want to stop there.
Reece wants to use his experience, platform, and popularity to tell others that they too can achieve the goals and targets they set for themselves in life.
He said: “I can’t believe I was able to achieve what I wanted. Now I want to inspire young people to focus and not doubt themselves. To take that risk in life .
“I want to inspire others to pursue their dreams, to achieve the goals they set for themselves. If I had doubted myself, I would have walked past someone else owning this store and it would have made me feel bad, but I chased after him and got to him.”
Reece’s Cafe, which is on Old Heath Road, Eastfield, Wolverhampton, is open seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and serves a variety of food and drink including breakfasts, sandwiches, salads and even more.
