SoDel Concepts was nominated by Terry Carson, the principal of Seaford High School. SoDel supported the school’s ProStart curriculum, a two-year culinary program developed by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation.

Ronnie Burkle, chef and a director of operations for SoDel Concepts, cooked with the students and gave them tours of two SoDel Concepts restaurants.

He also brought students to SoDel Concepts’ corporate office in downtown Rehoboth Beach. Phill Blush drove the company’s food truck, Big Thunder Roadside Kitchen, to the school for tours. He discussed the truck’s day-to-day operations and showed students how to use the equipment. The students created their own food truck concept with a truck design and menu.
