Students at Bowie High Schoolâ€™s International Business Academy wantÂ to launch a food truck business on a retired EPISD school bus in hopes of profiting enoughÂ money to feed a scholarship fund.
About $30,000 are needed to retrofit the bus â€“ including burners, prep space and a verticalÂ refrigerator â€“ and student shave already made sales pitches to several local business peopleÂ and potential donors.
So far, they have raised about $3,000 toward the project, called theÂ â€śOso Good Food Truck.â€ť
The students have developed a business plan and a sales pitch for donors. The planÂ includes the creation of a proposed menu and a schematic rendering of the food truck. TheÂ menu includes tacos, quesadillas and several stews.
Students also are promoting healthy eating habits and their plans will help promote and growÂ Bowieâ€™s community garden by selling produce and using the garden as a source of freshÂ ingredients.
All the proceeds from the proposed food truck will go toward a scholarship fund for currentÂ and future Bowie High School students.
