The Good, The Bad, The Ugly: Realities of Food Business Entrepreneurship

June 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT


Anyone can cook. Not everyone is cut out for food business, though! How do you know if it’s for you, or you’re ready for next steps? What’s it take to move your concept from notebook or home production to reality? What skills do you need, what information do you need to access?

If you’re dreaming of building a food business, or started one and feel overwhelmed, this robust and lively overview of the realities of food entrepreneurship will shake you awake, clarify your focus, and connect you with real tools and resources. If you’re ready, you’ll leave excited and eager. If you’re not, you’ll leave with good homework to build a strong foundation.

In one short class you’ll access the accumulated wisdom of fun successes and heartbreaking failures by many food entrepreneurs who’ve come before you. With decades in front-of-the-house, back-of-the-house, back office and in guiding entrepreneurs like you, Dani Black will challenge and encourage you: don’t be scared, get prepared!

Please submit the one question or issue you’d like Dani to address. She will respond to as many as time permits. Complete this short survey to ask your question..

Due to limited virtual seating, this free workshop is restricted to restaurant, cafe, and food truck owners currently based in and operating or planned to be in North Carolina.

Speaker(s): Dani Black, Bigger Tables Culinary and Service Consulting

Fee: No Cost
