Flashback Friday – Suffolk County Community College Business Class visits former Entrepreneurship student and Crazy Crepe Owner

CrazyCrepeLogo113x141November 6, 2016 – Twenty students enrolled in Business Administration BUS 123: Entrepreneurship course on the Ammerman campus, visited the Crazy Crepe restaurant, founded and operated by former Suffolk County Community College student, Kevin Muller.

Kevin Muller, Crazy Crepe Owner & former Suffolk County Community College student.

The entrepreneurship course focuses on the study of the environment of small business and  the functions and philosophy of entrepreneurs. Topics include problems in initiating and achieving success in new small business, including financing, marketing, management and legal governmental relationships involved. This onsite visit to a local business located minutes away from the Ammerman campus in Selden, NY gave the students the opportunity to have a unique learning experience as part of their business education.

Starting with a brief account of his educational background, Mr. Muller shared the process of selecting, opening and reopening his business. With initial capital funding of $20,000 which he raised through working full –time and living at home, he opened his first yogurt shop at the Selden location, while maintaining his full-time job. Shortly after realizing the business would not be successful, he used a $3,000 line of credit to re-brand the store and offer crepes using a family recipe from his grandmother.  20171106_180338_1510163919744

In addition to talking about raising capital, Mr. Muller explained several of his business practices to the students that brought their course content to life. He spoke walking the neighborhoods, speaking to customers and surveying potential new locations as part of his research process of opening new locations. He frequently uses community connections and offers to host fundraisers and participate in industry events to gain more customer familiarity with the Crazy Crepe brand and test out new products. He meets with the staff at each of his four locations and chooses to lead by example with a hands-on management style. In addition to managing his current businesses, he shared his vision for a new brand and possible franchising opportunities with the students.

In a post-visit class discussion with Professor Lauren Liburd the students expressed their appreciation of the experience. They were encouraged to see a young entrepreneur from Long Island, whom they could relate to. They recognized his work ethic and found assurance in their ability to be successful entrepreneurs, should they apply the same principles to their business aspirations. This experience gave students a first-hand look into the possibilities of utilizing their business education to further their goals and dreams of success.

Suffolk Culinary Students Partner With Community Action Southold Town, Prepare Thanksgiving Dinners for East End Families

Thanksgiving Cooking

 A Thanksgiving Tradition: Suffolk County Community College Culinary students prepare Thanksgiving meals for needy families. 

Suffolk County Community College’s Culinary Arts program students will prepare about 200 dinners for Community Action Southold Town’s (CAST) Greenport food pantry in what has become an annual and happy undertaking for the college’s culinary program and its students.

This is the first year Suffolk’s Culinary program has worked with CAST, a not-for-profit that has worked in Southold Town since 1965  to help low-income residents meet basic needs in the areas of nutrition, employment, energy, and education. CAST exists as a safety net for Southold Town families from Laurel to Orient Point, including Fisher’s Island. The majority of CAST’s funding comes from the generosity of the community.

This marks the ninth year Suffolk County Community College students and faculty have happily volunteered their culinary expertise to support the holiday cooking.

The dinner preparation will take place on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 beginning at 8 a.m. at the Suffolk County Community College Culinary Arts & Hospitality Center, 20 East Main St., Riverhead, NY 11901. Cooking and packaging the meals will run through to 12 noon.

“We celebrate Thanksgiving by cooking and sharing our favorite foods, being with the ones we love and giving thanks for all that we have. Our college and students, faculty and staff enjoy giving back to our community,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

About 40 students and faculty chefs from the college’s culinary program will prepare the meal whose ingredients are provided by CAST —  more than 20 turkeys; 100 pounds of mashed potatoes; 50 pounds of sweet potatoes; 80 pounds of stuffing; 25 pounds of assorted vegetables and 20 each of apple and pumpkin pies. And, of course, gravy – more than 5 gallons of it!

The Clinton Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church, 614 Third Street, Greenport is working in collaboration with CAST for people who want to gather and eat their hot turkey dinner in fellowship with their neighbors or pick up a meal to take home. The church will distribute meals on Wednesday Nov 22 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
