You may not have known it, but your lifelong dream has been to own your own restaurant -- and it is about to come true!Of course, you realize that you are going to have to separate your eatery from the competition, so you have decided that your special "hook" is that your place serves ONLY SANDWICHES!It doesn't matter what the course, appetizer or breakfast or the Dinner of the Day, it is a sandwich.

 

 

With that in mind, you and three other restaurateurs must come up with your restaurant's THEME, MENU (with recipes), and MARKETING.Once all your materials are created, you will present your enterprise to the class, who will evaluate your work and choose the most unusual sandwich from your menu.Finally, you and your team of chefs will make and eat the most unique item on your menu for the class.Bon appetite!

 

If you choose to print this document, it is divided into three separate pages: the assignment (1), the rubrics (2), and the journal prompts (3).Please select the one or ones you want only.
