“As a business owner and CNM culinary student, the experience that I have gained by selling my breads and pastries at the SFI café has helped me to grow my business. I can reach new customers, test new products, and receive expert help from the Street Food Institute Chefs when I need it. I love being able to offer my services to other CNM students!”– Frossene King, Owner, Kalamata 505

Buen Provecho

Costa Rican and Latin Food, Albuquerque

In 2016, Kattia Rojas registered for the food truck and the entrepreneur course at CNM, as part of the Culinary Arts Program. The opportunity to work as an intern provided her with the skills and confidence she needed to start her own business. Thanks to SFI she established a work relationship with an industrial kitchen, markets and inspectors, as part of her plans to start her own catering business. They also provided valuable guidance towards this goal.

“I will be forever grateful for their valuable help. They played a pivotal role during this process,” Kattia explained.

Her participation in a number of markets during the weekends helped Kattia gain more valuable experience and, after two years, she is now ready to expand her venture: Buen Provecho is planning to open its first location in April, 2018.
