Why does the Rancho Cucamonga location charge a fee for their classes, while the other locations don't usually seem to?

Cookin' Cousins said...

It is to cover costs of the handouts as well as to reserve a spot in the class. Rancho has limited space for classes and so the employees need to know when a class is full. They are working with some other options and hoping in the future they will not need to charge.
Thanks for your question
