ROADMAPS for becoming food entrepreneurs
Becoming an entrepreneur can look wildly different depending on which path you take. Some iterations involve a physical location and a team of employees. While in others, you may be a company of one working out of your home.
* The food truck owner roadmap
Starting a food truck is an amazing way to start a career of food entrepreneurship on a small scale. You will create your own menu, cook, interact with guests, and market your business – just like a brick-and-mortar restaurant.
To own a successful food truck you need to know your way around the kitchen. You may find that even if you already have some kitchen experience, there are gaps in your knowledge that you want to fill by attending culinary school or training.
* Becoming a food truck owner..
Research your market and choose your niche. Build your menu and start caming up with marketing and branding ideas.
– Build your truck
Whether you start from scratch with a brand new truck or refurbish an old school bus, there will be costs and customization involved. You’ll also need to get local and state permits to make sure you’re allowed to operate.
-Open up shop-you’re a food truck owner
You can open up with a small menu, a stuff of one or two, and your own unique menu pretty quickly!
# The Restaurant owner Roadmap
Opening a restaurant is a dream for so many cooks and chefs. Being able to call the shorts and share your own food vision with your community is truly special.
A restaurant has more “moving parts” than many other types of culinary entrepreneurship, so both food and business education will be key ingredients in your success.
* Becoming a restaurant owner
1 – create a business plan
* who are you serving and where?
* what kind of food will you make?
* what gap are you filling in your local market?
* How profitable do you think you can be?
You’ll need to answer all of these questions before you can start building out your concept.
# SECURE FUNDING
Most entrepreneurs can’t start a restaurant without any outside funding.
# FIND AND OUTFIT TOUR SPACE
Once you’ve signed that lease, it all gets real! You’ll need restaurant furniture, kitchen equipment, dishes, glassware, cooking utensils that works! Make a checklist so you don’t forget anything you’ll need to hire your managers, kitchen team and service staff in advance, so they can be well trained on the menu and service style.
# HAVE GRAND OPENING
When the menu is ready, and the restaurant looks like a restaurant, it’s time to welcome the public.
Promote your grand opening on social media and in the local press to make sure it’s a hit.
