Semester 1 - Project and Hospitality Week

Restaurant Concept Design & Development
Throughout the semester, you will work in teams to design and develop a viable Concept Restaurant.
At the end of the semester, you will test your concept with a PoC, a pop-up restaurant with eight covers per service managed over a two-day period. Working with students from Institut Lyfe’s Master’s in Culinary Leadership & Innovation who will shoulder the main responsibility for food production, you will create the menus, design and décor for a realistic and viable restaurant, refining and improving the concept through the two days of trials.
Your concept will be supported by a fully researched and detailed business plan, providing insight into the financial and marketing feasibility of your conception.
