Greater Boston SCORE Workshop: Starting a Specialty Food Business
Have you thought about marketing the secret family barbecue sauce as a specialty food product? Are you considering turning your love of baking into a catering business? Are you flirting with the idea of owning a food truck? Many of us love to cook, but developing and growing a food business requires a lot more than culinary skills.
This workshop will help you consider the many factors that go into a successful food business, and will also acquaint you with some of the valuable resources in Massachusetts that are available for manufacturing, packaging, and selling specialty food products. Note: this workshop is NOT geared for people considering opening a restaurant, which is even MORE complicated!
The workshop is sponsored by SCORE Boston and presented by SCORE mentor Fred DeFinis. Mr. DeFinis is the Founder and CEO of Component Solutions, Inc. a supplier of playground components, and has held senior marketing and sales management positions in a number of startup and early stage manufacturing companies.
