Cover photo caption: This picture is a great example of the experience filled classes CET offers. This was an international marketing class lunch at a restaurant called Hungry Lung’s Kitchen. The reason we went there was that our professor knows the Canadian owner who recently started up this restaurant in China. We have been learning about how companies adjust to different cultures as they become international and this was a very cool real-life example that we could learn about from the owner directly rather than from reading an article. As well, there are now four locations of this restaurant, making for a good discussion on expansion. Lastly, I have to mention the plating was impeccable. Each dish (whether mac and cheese, an omelet, steak and eggs, or lasagna) came out on a different type of dish (cast iron pan, wooden board, fancy plate, etc). It was very impressive. This picture was taken during our conversation with the owner (a sliver of my face can be seen in the very right corner).
