Starting Your Food Business

Starting your food business is nothing short of a whirlwind. We recommend you consider the following before starting any food business.

 

Research 

Take the time to learn about your target market, competing products, and build a business plan. Perfect your elevator pitch so you can succinctly share your business with others. Know your costs and profitability, and expect changes to your plans as you begin your journey. 

Find business resources

Look for resources to support you. Consider finding a mentor, and financial sources. 

Make an Action Plan

Don’t wing it. List what you need to do to start your business as you go, and don’t be afraid to modify it. Things will change, and how well you can prepare and adapt will help you succeed.

Start a "Business Plan"

A business plan is an effective tool in starting any business, and can grow as you grow. A business plan can help to clearly define your business for yourself, and most importantly to any possible investors, lenders, purchasers, or future partners.
