A one-of-a-kind learning lab — on wheels!
There’s nothing else in Texas like Lumberjack Express, SFA’s mobile food lab!
The big, purple academic lab provides students in the School of Human Sciences a transformational learning experience that’s as close to running their own food truck as it gets.
That includes developing and executing an entrepreneurial business plan, creating and preparing exciting, theme-based menus, and providing excellent customer service.
All cuisine is prepared by hospitality administration majors under the direction of chef Todd Barrios. Students are enrolled in a customer-relations course taught by Dr. Mary Olle.
The Lumberjack Express also rolls out for outreach and recruiting events, such as career and college fairs, Showcase Saturday, and community cooking demonstrations.
