Business Enterprises of Nevada (BEN)

Federal and State laws provide a priority right for individuals who are legally blind to operate food, beverage, and vending in federal, state and local public buildings. After qualifying with the Nevada Bureau of Services to the Blind and Visually Impaired, individuals receive training and on-the-job experience in managing and operating snack bars, cafeterias, vending machine routes and other businesses located in public buildings. Currently, there are sites throughout Nevada operated by licensed operators who are blind.
