Starting a Food Business
(Just $20)

March 26, 3-4:00 pm
2545 Bellwood Road
Richmond, VA 23237

Take a concept for a food business from dream to reality.  If you’ve ever wanted to sell your own recipes in stores or at the farmers market, or if you have a great idea for a food truck or restaurant, now may be the time to start your own business!  If you’re already in business but working ‘under the radar,’ now is the time to take the next step.  

This class will introduce you to concepts that can help make your business legal and profitable.  We’ll do some basic self-assessment to determine if starting a food business is right for you.  Learn the basics behind establishing your business structure, outfitting your kitchen, and complying with state and local licensing requirements.  

Business Planning for Food Businesses
March 26, 4-6:00 pm
2545 Bellwood Road
Richmond, VA 23237

The business plan is essential to any successful business.  It provides a roadmap to follow and allows for forward thinking.  A business without a business plan is like a scout without a compass...LOST.  Examine the components of your plan and discuss issues specific to food-based businesses.  This is the first step in fully fleshing out your concept and understanding all the necessary components to running a business.  

Strategic Pricing for Food Entrepreneurs
April 9, 4-6:00 pm
2545 Bellwood Road
Richmond, VA 23237

Knowing the yield and true cost of your ingredients is essential to increasing your profit margin.  It is absolutely necessary to making money wholesale, and it is a fundamental aspect of food-based businesses.

Learn how to arrive at the proper price point for your goods based on recipes and receipts.  Learn fundamental concepts like yield, food cost, menu spread, and competition.  Acquire the tools to create a wholesale model that will make money!

This class includes math-focused break-out sessions.  Bring your calculator as well as recipes and receipts to use as examples if you wish!

Food Business Marketing
April 23, 4-6:00 pm
2545 Bellwood Road
Richmond, VA 23237

Successful marketing starts with understanding your target market.  Ask the pertinent questions to determine your target market, and use those answers to create your Marketing Plan, a document that answers the entrepreneur’s toughest question:  What should I do next?

Examine various forms of marketing and begin to develop your brand.  Create a Marketing Plan for your business to provide focus and direction, freeing your time to work on daily production and running your business!

$40 for one person & $70 for two people when registering 2 days in advance.  
Pricing goes to $45 and $80 after the deadline!
