YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – If you’re in Youngstown looking for something sweet, you can stop by a new cafe.
The Cookies and Cream Cafe opened Friday at the Choffin Career and Technical Center. It will serve flavored coffee and cookies, and plans to expand once its customer base grows and requests come in.
The cafe is run by students in the new hospitality program at Choffin, and all of the cookies are made by students as well.
The goal is to give students real-life experience, while also serving the public, said Choffin Career and Technical Center Executive Director Joe Meranto.
“The goal is to make them productive citizens when they graduate, not just to graduate from something, but to something,” he said.
The Cookies and Cream Cafe will be open to the public daily.
