When we first brought you the story of Blake Pyron and Blake's Snow Shack in Sanger back in February, we had no idea it would go around the globe.
"We went worldwide, we've gotten messages from Russia and England. Families reaching out saying they are being encouraged from our story" said Blake's mom, Mary Ann Blakely Pyron.
Blake is the youngest business owner in Sanger and the only business owner in Texas with Down Syndrome. He opened Blake's Snow Shack Snow Cone stand last month in Sanger to rave reviews.
Folks have come from all over to be part of the fun at Blake's yellow, red and blue trailer on Locust Street in Sanger.
"On opening day we had people drive in from Kansas. We've had people from California come up, it's the hot spot of Texas right now" Mary Ann added.
This weekend Blake's Snow Shack kicks into passing gear as the Leavine Family of Racing has put Blake's logo on their Number 95 car for the Pocono NASCAR Race.
"Come to find out they Leavine family has a grandson who is twenty-one and has autism. They were just so inspired by our story they wanted to put us on their car" Mary Ann beamed.
