Iowa Culinary Institute Expansion Seeks to Raise Profile
ANKENY, Iowa - A new, $5.4 million expansion at DMACC's Iowa Culinary Institute is more than just a flashy upgrade - it's an effort to raise the recognition of a school responsible for some of Des Moines' best eateries. The institute, located at DMACC's Ankeny campus, brings 8,000-square-feet of new space - including an atrium, new classrooms, and offices. The program already boasts an impressive kitchen space for its 200 students, but with these new additions, staff say they hope people in Central Iowa will become more aware of the great things happening here.
