This is an important opportunity that introduces the inner-workings of the Can-Do Kitchen. Here, we provide an overview of the requirements of becoming a food business owner, including food safety, licensing, and insurance. Attendees receive Can-Do Kitchen applications at this Tour, and are invited to return them to us if they wish to further explore being a member and attending Can-Do camp. The application is a business planning tool that many aspiring entrepreneurs find very helpful.
Please RSVP by emailing your name and date you wish to attend to email@example.com or calling 269-492-0261 so we know how many people to expect. (Note: Please let us know if you are in need of interpretation and we'll do our best to arrange it.)
