One of my classes this semester is a food service management course. I went into my nutrition program thinking that food service was something I would “get through” because it was required, but I ended up really enjoying the material. You already know how much I love to cook, and I find the logistics of running an operation really interesting.
Our final group project for this class was to create a food service business from the ground up. We made a marketing plan, crafted a menu, planned the restaurant layout, and calculated a realistic budget. Yesterday we presented our project to the class, and I thought you might be interested in our proposed sandwich shop named “The Go Between”.
Ethnic sandwiches are one of the top food trends of 2011, and we believe the Seaport District is the perfect location. We aimed to capture the weekday lunchtime crowd, in addition to tourists and residents of the area. Our proposed menu has a variety of options. (Sorry if the font is a bit small to read, I had a hard time with the image.)
What do you guys think? I would be excited to eat here, but since our sandwich shop is completely fictional, I am going to have to make my own Banh Mi at home.
Special thanks goes to my project partners Vanessa and Hillary. I had a lot of fun over the course of the semester, and learned a lot. I don’t see myself working in the restaurant business, but you never know.
