L’École Culinaire Academy announces two new courses customized for those interested in starting their own food truck business. The classes take place at L’École Culinaire Academy, 9200 Olive Boulevard, at the L’Ecole Culinaire Campus, 9811 South Forty Drive, and on the L’Ecole Culinaire Food Truck.
The Culinary Entrepreneurship: Food Truck course is designed for those with some experience in the food service industry and interest in starting up their own food truck. The class is 50 hours of lecture and lab with L’Ecole Chef instructors. Topics covered include: concept and menu development, customer service, basic marketing, equipment and truck selection, sales transaction management, licensing and permitting.
Culinary Entrepreneurship: Food Truck-Abridged is designed for those with more foodservice industry experience, a developed concept and an interest in opening their own food truck business. The course is 16 hours and concentrates on the processes and preparation for hands on food truck operation while offering an overview of licensing and equipment challenges.
“A food truck gives culinarians and entrepreneurs affordable and immediate access to consumers. St. Louis residents have repeatedly demonstrated their willingness to try great food through their support of the food trucks in the area. The opportunity is not just for entrepreneurs avoiding the expense of brick and mortar, but actual brick and mortar locations to help drive business into their restaurants,” said John Womick Dean of Culinary Studies for L’Ecole Culinaire.
