FORT WAYNE -

Students in IPFW's Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management will Thursday debut a completely student-run restaurant. Doppio Zero will feature Italian cuisine while students manage all aspects of the operation.

The restaurant will be open every Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. through April 26, with one exception of March 8 while the university is on spring break. IPFW says the students control all facets of the restaurant, including creating the decor, planning the menu, ordering supplies and generating profits. 

John Niser, chair of the Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management, says the end goal of the operation is for students to understand the "Art of Management."

"It is so important to give the students this real-world experience," Niser said in a news release. "Not only do our students manage and run the restaurant, they also benefit from the profits, which go toward travel scholarships that offer students opportunities to see and experience places outside of Fort Wayne."

The restaurant takes walk-ins, but recommends making a reservation due to the limited time it will be open. You can learn more about the restaurant by clicking here.
