Fred Jaeger, manager of the Hospitality and Restaurant Management at Hillsborough Community College describes the program as a hidden gem.

"Oh yes! Absolutely!" Jaeger told ABC Action News.

It's literally one of the best in the country among two-year colleges. Students at HCC are given real world experience from the gourmet dining room, to the kitchen and restaurant operations.

"I think that says an awful lot about the program," said student Nancy Summit.

Summit one of the students taking advantage. A major benefit for Summit, along with other students is the low cost of a two-year school.

Most are also awarded paid internships right away. Companies partnering with the college include the Westin and Legends at Steinbrenner Field.
