Background For Teachers:
Intended Learning Outcomes:
d. Product - The culmination activity for this unit is a simulation of a restaurant setting. The goal for this activity is for the students to have an opportunity to learn about marketing, food service jobs, and to experience the actual preparation and serving of a food product. In this instance, the food product the students make is not as important as the learning experience. Introduce the menu items that your restaurant will serve. Some suggested recipes are provided on pages 15 to 17, but the final decision must fit the students, their abilities, and the school facilities. It is suggested that the choice be limited to three items. It is best to offer items that can be changed to give variety in ordering and preparing food. Have each student creatively name menu items on the RESTAURANT PROMOTION worksheet.
Breadstick Examples: Zesty Italian Breadsticks (Italian seasoned), Zippy Breadsticks (Cinnamon and sugar), Zingy Breadsticks (Plain)e. Price - Display the cost of the supplies for the restaurant lab. Discuss the other expenses in running a restaurant, (employee pay, building cost, utilities, etc.) Discuss the need for profit. Most businesses figure the sales price is double the cost to produce or buy an item. Have students determine what you will charge for menu items. Have students record class-agreed-upon prices on the RESTAURANT PROMOTION worksheet.

c. Advertisement is one form of promotion. Have students create a logo and/or slogan to represent the restaurant.

Example: The golden arches are know worldwide as McDonald's, the red bull's eye identifies Target.
d. Have students design a menu for the restaurant using a computer design program, or felt-tip markers, paper, etc. Menu items are usually grouped together: beverages, main dishes, and appetizers. They should use color and pictures of food, and leave enough space between items so the menu can be easily read. It must include the following information:
The design needs to include at least three (3) groups of items. These menus will be used later for the restaurant. The students need to plan out their menu on the RESTAURANT MENU worksheet.
