“I wanted to own a restaurant ever since I was a kid.”

Tim’s Place, a restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is named after a young man with Down Syndrome, Tim Harris.

Tim calls it “the world’s friendliest restaurant.” He works there six days a week and greets each customer at the door.

For StoryCorps, Tim sat down with his father, Keith, who helped him start the business in 2010.
