Food For Profit


Food for Profit is a very practical session, providing information that you will be able to use immediately to ensure that your business starts out and grows in a way that matches your vision and goals.


Guiding food entrepreneurs through the initial steps to start a business, this workshop combines educational   presentations, guest speakers     and a highly interactive learning environment to address:

  • Getting Started A discussion of   the challenges and advantages of owning a food related business.
  •  Legally Speaking Learn the role that city and state sanitarians will have in your venture–a chance to talk about licensure and the inspection process.
  •  Developing a Game Plan A business idea must be do-able, marketable, and profitable to     provide a reliable forecast about the feasibility of your business.
  •  Niche Marketing The importance of accurately targeting your “first and best customer”; using the four P’s of price, product, placement, and promotion.
  •  Safe Food Handling Good preparation and storage methods lengthen shelf life and lessen liability. The extra attention paid at a few specific points in your operation will save time for you, and improve product quality.
  • Packaging your Product Selecting the right packaging — materials, labels, and the information provided — can make or break your product’s future in the marketplace.
  • Financing your Business It takes money to make money! Covers self-financing, loans, and grants, as well as revenue generation through effective pricing.
