Keep checking back for updates regarding the opening date of the restaurant!
Earlier this week, the Warsaw Fire Department visited our culinary students in the Blue Apron to teach about fire extinguisher safety training. The students also had the opportunity to prepare, serve, and eat lunch with the firemen present. Special thanks to WFD for their support & help with so many things around the WACC!
