Join La Cocina for a night with Luis Vazquez (Chaac Mool), Curtis Kimball (The Creme Brulee Cart), Ambere St. Denis (Crimson Insurance) and John Kwong (SF Department of Public Works), as we discuss the issues facing mobile food vendors. From permits, to trucks vs. trailers, to location scouting, we will attempt to demystify the world of mobile food for hopeful entrepreneurs.
The workshop is made possible thanks to generous support from Chevron.
La Cocina is a ground-breaking business incubator designed to reduce the obstacles that often prevent low-income food entrepreneurs from creating successful and sustainable small businesses. By providing affordable, shared, commercial kitchen space, an array of industry-specific technical assistance and services, and access to market opportunities and access to capita, La Cocina works with entrepreneurs as they launch, grow, and formalize successful food businesses. We focus primarily on women from culturally diverse communities and immigrant communities. Our vision is that our program participants will become economically self-sufficient and contribute to a vibrant and diverse economy doing what they love to do.
