J. Sargeant Reynolds’ culinary arts program moving to 25th Street

Louis Llovio has a long piece on today on plans by J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College to move their culinary arts program into part of the complex coming with the development of the new grocery store at 25th and Nine Mile:

J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College is expanding its culinary arts program in a move that, if successful, will create a much-needed pipeline of trained kitchen workers for Richmond’s booming restaurant scene.


Reynolds’ foundation OK’d an agreement Friday that allows the college to move forward on plans to open a 20,000-square-foot facility in the development at the northern corner of Nine Mile Road and North 25th Street. The agreement is with Steven Markel, vice chairman of Henrico County-based specialty insurer Markel Corp., who is financing the project. Details of the deal were not immediately available.
