Driscoll Foods Sponsors the NJRA ProStart Competition
On Tuesday, January 14th, high school students from across New Jersey gathered at the Berkeley Carteret Hotel in Asbury Park for the Annual NJRA ProStart Competition. This annual competition is a 2 part event in which high school students compete in both a culinary competition as well as a conceptual management presentation. The culinary portion challenged students to present an appetizer, an entrée and a dessert to an esteemed panel of judges. The management competition challenged the students with developing a concept for a restaurant. The teams had to present an entire plan starting with a them and location of a proposed establishment to an actual proposed P&L sheet. The teams from Passaic County Vocational Tech swept the competition taking 1st place in both Culinary and Management! This competition was a great sneak peak at the talent that will be emerging from New Jersey in the years to come!
