Our Curriculum

We’ve got you covered.

Our personalized curriculum takes current and future food biz owners through a training that begins with the foundation of building a business (defining your mission, crafting the perfect pitch), moves into the nitty-gritty (financial forecasting, health regulations) and ends with the fun stuff you need to know when going to market (distribution, social media marketing).
