Students at Bowie High School’s International Business Academy want to launch a food truck business on a retired EPISD school bus in hopes of profiting enough money to feed a scholarship fund.
About $30,000 are needed to retrofit the bus – including burners, prep space and a vertical refrigerator – and student shave already made sales pitches to several local business people and potential donors.
So far, they have raised about $3,000 toward the project, called the “Oso Good Food Truck.”
The students have developed a business plan and a sales pitch for donors. The plan includes the creation of a proposed menu and a schematic rendering of the food truck. The menu includes tacos, quesadillas and several stews.
Students also are promoting healthy eating habits and their plans will help promote and grow Bowie’s community garden by selling produce and using the garden as a source of fresh ingredients.
All the proceeds from the proposed food truck will go toward a scholarship fund for current and future Bowie High School students.
