An eastern Nebraska high school will soon welcome a new coffee shop on campus, created and run by students.

The Fremont Tribune reports that an entrepreneurship class will be bringing Deja Brew to Fremont High School this fall. The class is offered by the high school and Metropolitan Community College, but it's the first time the business incubator has created a student-run and student-managed business.

Matt Burg is a business teacher at Fremont High School. He says every element of the coffee shop has been crafted by students, from the marketing concept to the business prospectus.

Burg says Deja Brew will serve students and faculty before classes and during a study-hall period every day.

LaRue Coffee will provide the equipment and coffee to the student-run shop.
