Students in the Advanced Baking and Pastry Operations course set up shop in the Keystone Dining Room on Wednesday, where they hosted “trade show” booths to show off skills in product development, marketing and merchandising. As part of the project, each student develops a new product, determines human resources and facilities requirements, and develops marketing materials – from menus to business cards – and packaging. At the Trade Show, they provided free samples for the college community.
