Hey everybody. My name is Jessica and I just wanted to pop in and say hi. I am currently a culinary student and I have plans to open my own restaurant with my mom after I graduate and get a few years in the kitchen under my belt. I hope that joining this group will help me to get all the info on the ins and outs of starting your own restaurant. I hope that we can all get to know each other better.
