Golden Mushroom bossman
Reid Ashton, MRA chairman
of the board, says that a key
reason for Michigan's
restaurant growth is the
state's superior educational
programs . . . "Michigan is at
the forefront in the field of
culinary education," says
Reid. "Students coming out of
our universities and voca-
tional schools are bringing
fresh, innovative ideas into
the workplace."
Michigan has one of the
finest food service educa-
tional networks in the coun-
try, with 34 high schools, 12
community colleges, 13
universities and 19 vocational
schools offering programs.
Reid adds that nationally,
food service is in a favorable
position compared to many
other domestic industries .. .
One distinct advantage is
that food service does not
have to share its growth with
foreign competition.
