Schenectady Introduces New Food Truck Concept

Who doesn’t love a food truck? They’re convenient, delicious, and Schenectady is looking to grow the concept with their new truck.

SUNY Schenectady (formerly Schenectady County Community College) is known for their restaurant program, but now, they’re adding something new to their repertoire, a food truck.

SUNY Schenectady is adding a Mobile Food Service Certificate to their curriculum. According to SUNY Schenectady in a press release:

“Unlike most food trucks, the SUNY Schenectady food truck is designed in a way so that the students can learn about a variety of cuisine, cooking methods, and products. It is equipped with a sandwich/salad station, reach-in refrigerator and freezer, double fryer, six-burner stove with convection oven, double conveyor pizza oven, char broiler, griddle, three bay sink, and a hand sink. By changing the menu daily, students can learn about a variety of cuisine, cooking methods, and products.”

The program is 26 credits and gives students the real-life opportunity to work in a food truck in events throughout the area. That gives the students an opportunity to not just learn how to cook in a small space, but to interact with the public at the same time.
