KSU pop-up restaurants offer hearty serving of learning (Marietta Daily Journal)
KENNESAW, Ga. (Apr 18, 2017) — Every semester, students in the Michael A. Leven School of Culinary Sustainability and Hospitality get a hearty helping of hands-on learning.
For their capstone project, seniors in the Culinary Sustainability and Hospitality program organize and host pop-up restaurants on the Kennesaw State University campus. The students work through the entire process of running a restaurant — developing their concept, determining the menu, testing recipes, ordering food, creating the decor, preparing the meals and hosting guests for lunch and dinner.
