Mayor Berry and Gary Oppedahl, Director Economic Development, Score Big for the Home Team:
City gets initial $100K grant to develop proposals, which could lead to millions in grants and loans.
Central New Mexico’s Culinary Arts program wants to keep up with how the industry is evolving, and food trucks are the “next big thing.” As it turns out, the newest truck serving Albuquerque is actually a classroom for some students.
“The reality of a brick and mortar building, it’s a huge investment for students to overtake…the food truck industry is a great way for students to get their foot in the door, try it out and see,” CNM dean Donna Diller said.
