Intro to Business classes compete for the best burger

Allison Hinze, Entertainment Editor

With summer fast approaching and school drawing to a close, Central’s Intro to Business students still have one more project to complete. The students have teamed up with Tom and Eddie’s restaurant, a small chain that has opened establishments in five different Illinois towns, including Naperville, and each class has created their own burger to market. The idea of the project, according to CTE instructor Christine Bell, is for the students to use the four “P’s” of marketing; they create the product, choose a place to sell it, price it and promote it.

On May 16 from 5 to 9 p.m. the Naperville Tom and Eddie’s will be selling each of the four classes’ burgers and they will compete to see who sells the most of their masterpiece. The Central community is encouraged to go because 10 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the school. Bell provided a description of each burger to be sold.
