Carla Hall’s being very resourceful while planning to open a Nashville-style restaurant in New York City. Not only is she attempting to raise capital through Kickstarter, she’s worked with Philadelphia’s Drexel University to set up a lab class for students in Drexel’s culinary arts program. The students will help with kitchen design, recipe development, and many of the other tasks that must be addressed prior to opening a new restaurant. The students gain valuable real-world experience and Carla gets their help. Ms. Hall said she’d like to eventually open a Southern Kitchen in Philadelphia.
