In partnership with the Iowa Western Small Business Development Center, Food Startup 101 is the first step towards starting a food business. We understand that it's an interesting time to start a food business. However, it's a great time to collect information and assess next steps so that you're prepared for when you do decide to launch.
This two-hour course is designed to help pre-launch food entrepreneurs – or anyone who has ever thought about starting a food business – understand the steps from idea to business. Topics include: startup costs and what to expect, setting up your business, health department and licensing, business planning and marketing. After this class, an entrepreneur will be ready to take the next steps to starting their business. This is the cornerstone class for Kitchen Council and a prerequisite for anyone applying for membership to the Kitchen Council Incubator.
After registering, you'll receive further instructions regarding Zoom log-in details.
