The Restaurant Entrepreneur

An Integrated Entrepreneurship, Marketing, and Computer Applications Simulation

Students start and run their own restaurant, creating all the documents needed to manage it successfully.

Description

Everybody loves going out to eat! In The Restaurant Entrepreneur, students embark on an entrepreneurial journey that lets them combine imagination, creativity, and computer skills as they start and run their own restaurant. Students begin by creating a name, logo, and style for their new restaurant. Then, using Microsoft Office (or equivalent applications), they assemble and create all of the documents that a "real" restaurant would need to open its doors. From writing a radio commercial script, to generating a revenue statement, students will be totally engaged as they learn first-hand how computer applications can be used when running a business.
