Hunter Haines, Brayden Sammons, Hayden Steger are former Warsaw Area Career Center students and recently visited Mrs. Heinsman's Accounting classes to talk about their journey into starting their new adventure: Campus Craves, a unique ice cream & late night foods shop in Bloomington, IN. They talked about their initial dream, the obstacles they overcame along the way, and what's to come for them soon. We appreciate the time they spent sharing their story with our students & wish them the best of luck in the future!!
Check out their story below, directly from the thecampuscraves.com! Be sure to check out their awesome place the next time you visit Bloomington!
The Campus Crave journey began just over a year and a half ago. A friend contacted another friend about a possible scratch to their entrepreneurial itch which would satisfy their ever-longing enterprising spirits, all before they even graduated high school. Both coming from families with long ties to entrepreneurial endeavors in a multitude of industries, the friend was intrigued by the idea and a chance to live out his dreams of becoming a young business owner. After an initial meeting, the idea became a feverish quest for research to perfect the vision: Campus Craves.
Simply put, Campus Craves is a fast-casual dining experience, like no other specializing in custom-creation trendy desserts and sandwiches. The main component of our business is our super premium ice cream, followed by edible cookie dough, gourmet sandwiches, air-fried offerings, and lastly classic beverages. We claim to be a fast-casual dining experience due to the layout and organization of our potential stores: Customers order their custom creations and select from our available options as they move through our ordering line.
Co-founders Brayden Sammons and Hunter Haines invite potential customers from all walks of life, to come and satisfy their crave in our fun, college-esque, and one-of-a-kind store where you can $ave Dat Money.

From Mrs. Ross- Marketing Instructor & WBL Internship Coordinator:
Every company has a story to tell (Marketing) just like every student in my Marketing classes has a story to tell. The students created their own 'story' board in my room to express ( and market) their story.
From Mrs. Heinsman: It’s always a great day when a former student wants to come back and speak with my students. Thanks, Evan Miller, for speaking about your upcoming accounting career at PWC and fellowship in accountancy at The Ohio State University! Very proud of you and great to catch up! Can’t wait to continue to hear about your journey!!
Principles of Marketing students recently completed ice cream business marketing projects. The students worked in groups to develop business plans for their own ice cream parlors, complete with unique ingredients, business names, specials, pricing, target age groups, advertisement strategies, etc. Several WCS staff, parents, & community members had the opportunity to participate in judging each group in various categories. All of the students did such a wonderful job with these projects & it was amazing to see how talented they truly are. Great job everyone!
