Under this event they took up the role of Coffee and Maggi sellers. Students borrowed a stall from RK Maggi and Coffee stall in front of HL Commerce College with the permission of its owner and they sold Maggi and Coffee to the customers coming to our stall.

Students had a great time and learning experience. They presented the menu to the customers and took there order and then they placed them with the order. Coffee was premade fresh in the morning and hence coffee orders included the task of only pouring glasses with the beverage. While the Maggi orders had a bit of challenge.

Students first learn the unique method of preparation of Maggi they employ from the stall owner. At the end of a tiring, exciting day they were able to make a profit of 500Rs.
