COLUMBUS, Ind. – Randy Lapidus couldn’t have predicted that his daughter’s cardiac arrest during an argument would eventually result in a new business venture.
Although doctors believed Rachel wouldn’t walk or talk again, she was able to transition into a rehabilitation program. When Rachel started vocational rehab, her disabilities made finding a job difficult. Lapidus wanted to change that, so he and his family recently opened Special Dogs and More, a hot dog restaurant in Fair Oaks Mall with the majority of employees having some form of developmental disability.
This is his story.
