Back to School
The company I work for has decided that if we put a certain sandwich store in our cafe our sales will increase by 27% (yes that is the number that they gave us). So next Sunday I hop on a plane and take a round about route to Milford,Connecticut... International headquarters for Subway. Yes boys and girls a chef with 25 years of experience under his belt is required to spend 2 weeks away from home to learn how to make some sandwiches. The intensive course includes 37 hours of "in store training" along with 44 hours of classroom experience.
Add to that, when I was getting all of the registration information together I found out that I also need to take 20... yes twenty on-line classes before I am allowed to attend "Subway University". So far I am about 14 classes in, most have gone well you can read one of the actual study questions below
Though most of the classes are pretty basic, I have to admit that I had to take the "How to Clean the Restrooms" module more than once before getting a passing grade.
I did make sure that my boss paid for the hotel suite with a kitchen so I am thinking that I can work from school for a few posts but I am not sure. I hear that the seafood is pretty good so we will see what I can come up with. If any of you know where to get good seafood in Milford Connecticut please pass the info to me soon .
