Mervo students open burger restaurant at R House
BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- A group of Baltimore high school students opened a restaurant Wednesday at a Remington market.
About 20 Mergenthaler Vocational-Technical High School seniors opened “Noisy Burger” restaurant in R House’s pop-up space.
"It's one thing to dream. But, to go out there and make your dreams happen, it's something totally different,” student Noah Wortham said. "You don't want to get somebody who feels as though the burger wasn't done with love. If it's not done with love, it's not done with passion. That's how you make connections with people."
The students are part of the school’s culinary arts program.
“They had to) draft up proposals for the project. We had them develop menu. All the stuff that goes into running a business, they had to do,” Noisy Tenants leader Nicholas Mitchel said. "If they put in the work right now, don't have this resume builder experience going forward and really do something with it."
The money the students make selling burgers will go to offset costs. Any additional money will go to the Greenmount West Community Center, according to Mitchel.
“Noisy Burger” will be open through Tuesday, May 2 at R House, located at 301 W. 29th Street in Baltimore.
