BakerRipley and Hope Clinic/Bite of Hope have teamed up to provide the “Food Industry Recovery Program”! This is an online series mixed with one-on-one coaching and presented in Spanish. This program is aimed at owners or partners of small businesses related to the food industry (restaurants, bakeries, food carts, packaged grocery producers, soft drinks, etc.).
The objective of the “Food Industry Recovery Program” is to rebuild businesses who have been impacted by COVID-19. They’ll learn about the importance of incorporating healthy foods, get access to food experts locally and globally, build out a strategic plan for recovery, and improve focus and business mindset in order to pivot your business.
This intensive 4-week seminar has no cost, the workshops will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 am – 11:00 am via Zoom. Starting on June 9 and ending on June 30. In addition to the workshops, students get access to technical assistance of up to two hours per week and will finish the class with a new strategic plan.
Anyone who is interested can apply here. Once the application is completed, a staff member of BakerRipley will contact the business owner within 48 hours. All applicants will be screened and it is a first come first serve basis. The class has a maximum capacity of 10 small businesses. Once we hit capacity we’ll add to a waiting list for the next cohort.
