“RMU’s Pop-up Restaurant Series provides an encapsulating experience for culinary students. They have complete autonomy over the concept, menu, design, and flow of their very own pop-up restaurant. Students learn the importance of quick-response decision making, meeting strict deadlines, the vision and mission behind a start-up business, menu development, budgeting, and managing a team. This is a true capstone experience for our culinary students!”
– Brad Hinsley, Culinary Arts Faculty
