The Pro-Start (culinary) class received a demonstration from Mr. Gustavo Marquez, who is also an Advisory committee member for this class. Mr. Marquez is the owner of Las Brisas in Malden and 7 other restaurants in the surrounding area. His son Cesar attends New Madrid Technical Skills Center in conjunction with Risco. Mr. Marquez provided a demonstration on how to make tacos and fajitas. He provided the students with a look into his past growing up in Mexico and how his determination and faith allowed him to build his business which has over 100 employees. He discussed customer service and how building your clientele is very important in a small business. The students greatly enjoyed the demonstration and taste testing. We greatly appreciate Mr. Marquez time and support for our school. THANK YOU!!!
