Valdosta - Good news for aspiring chefs in South Georgia.

Valdosta Technical College announced Wednesday they'll be creating a full time culinary arts program at the school.

They broke ground on what will be a 38 hundred square foot expansion to the 500 building on campus, which will serve as the culinary school kitchen and classrooms.

They say now is the perfect time to begin the program since Valdosta was just announced to be the best location in state to open a restaurant and has the best retail pull factor.

"It was a great opportunity for us to open a culinary arts program. There are no others in South Georgia, we expect to have good enrollment and starting salaries are really good for chefs," says Dr. F.D. Toth, Interim President at Val Tech.

School administrators expect the building to be completed by December 1 and start classes in the winter quarter of 2009.
