Wayne Gordon and Lorna Channer-Gordon have been giving back to Comfort District and surrounding communities in Mandeville for years, but with the launch of the Waychan Business Centre, they will now be able to give way more.
In addition to the Gordons, Latoya Wood-McCalla is a principal for the Centre which will be offering several services. This includes Supreme Ventures games, Quick and EZ BillPay, internet services; online shopping, and printing services. The complex will also be home to the S&S Liquor and Variety Store; Place of Serenity Hair Salon; Triple 7 Chill Spot Bar and Grill and New York Entertainment Movement Records.
In addition to meeting the demand for services, the Centre will also contribute to providing employment for residents of Comfort District and surrounding communities like Webbers, Brown’s Town and Broadleaf. Five persons have been employed so far and there are plans to employ additional staff.
“Over the years, we have had a strong and sustainable partnership with community establishments like the basic school and the youth club, sponsoring their different initiatives,” Gordon said.
The aim is to change Comfort District and surrounding communities for the better through WayChan.
“We are extremely excited to put these businesses together and hope that through our partnership, that the community will rebuild peace with the strong family value that we were brought up on. We are excited that they will have access to affordable internet with technology at their fingertips,” added Gordon.
Gordon is hoping that government officials and the business community will partner with them as they strive to foster a positive spirit for development.
There will be a grand opening of the Centre this Saturday, July 31 which will feature ribbon cutting, giveaways and a showcasing of the entire facility Gordon is hoping that people will come for the food and stay for the vibes.
Even after the grand-opening, WayChan will ensure that there will always be plenty of food and good vibes for patrons to enjoy at its facilities.
“In the future for the Bar and Grill, we are going to have a lot of outdoor focus, a lot of entertainment including live performances with bands. We hope to develop a full restaurant menu offering favourites and introduce some new dishes as well. We want to establish the restaurant for quality food and a fun place to be,” Gordon said.
