Two Challenging Competitions

The South Carolina ProStart Invitational is composed of two distinct competitions – management and culinary – that showcase the most important skills needed on either side of the restaurant and foodservice industry.

Management

Management teams develop a proposal for the next promising restaurant concept and present it to a panel of industry judges. Next, their problem solving skills are tested as they quickly solve challenges faced by managers daily.

 

2017 Restaurant Management Competition Results:

4th Place: Wando High School – Charleston

3rd Place: Academy for Technology and Academics – Conway

2nd Place: Blythewood High School – Blythewood

Culinary

The culinary competition highlights each team’s creative abilities through the preparation of a three-course meal in 60 minutes, using only two butane burners, and without access to running water or electricity. There is no room for error as they are evaluated on taste, skill, teamwork, safety and sanitation.
