The college and its sponsor, Reliable Water Services, are offering $2,500 in seed money along with other prizes to one of three finalists in the Hottest Kitchen Entrepreneur Challenge.

Participants submitted applications and photos describing their restaurant or food concepts, and a team of judges narrowed the entrants down to three. The winner will be chosen at an invitation-only demonstration at 3 p.m. Tuesday.

The event will mark the re-opening of MATC’s student-run restaurant, Cuisine, in its new location at 1015 N. 6th St., Milwaukee. It also celebrates the launch of MATC’s Entrepreneurship Center, a new technical diploma program that helps aspiring entrepreneurs launch their business concepts.

The winner will receive $2,500 in seed money from Reliable to start their business, an “entrepreneurial consultation package” from MATC, professional cookware and knives from Boelter Superstore and a two-hour private meeting with food industry executives from FaB Milwaukee, the Milwaukee 7’s food and beverage industry group. Judges includeJustin Aprahamian, chef de cuisine forSanford Restaurant, and Lynn Sbonik, co-owner of Beans & Barley.

Here are descriptions of the finalist entries provided by MATC:
