Meet a Food Starter Member

jane-fsmemberJane, is a locally based food entrepreneur. She wants to expand her business over the next 6 months. She’s off to a great start; revenues are growing steadily but her team is small and everyone is already working at maximum capacity to keep up with day-to-day work.

Jane and her team often encounter business development and technical industry questions that require expertise they don’t have access to  in-house. They need access to reliable information and expertise from a trusted source.  

After finding Food Starter’s information on our website, and witnessing the engaging online discussion through our social channels, Jane is confident in the valuable benefits our community could provide for her. Food starter is a place where she can find resources, seek referrals to consultants as well as access to the training that will help her to grow her business. 

Jane attends one of our weekly tours, and is satisfied that she has found the right place for her. Jane is excited to join the program the following week!
