About the Culinary Innovation Lab

The USFSM College of Hospitality & Tourism Leadership added an exciting new teaching facility to its Hospitality Management program in January 2014.

In October 2013, USFSM signed a four-year lease with Schroeder-Manatee Ranch for the 4,000+ square-foot space formerly occupied by the Viking Culinary Center on Lakewood Ranch’s Main Street. The lease was brokered by David Fletcher of Wagner Realty’s Commercial and Investment Division, following about a year of negotiations.

The lab serves as the first dedicated teaching kitchen and culinary lab for USFSM.
