Is your food business stuck in neutral?

Are you planning to expand, but confused about your next step?

If you said YES to any of these questions, then the Entrepreneurship and F&B Specialist Seminar is for you.

Slated this July at Hexagon Lounge, in RCBC Plaza, Makati City, the program is a series of six sessions  that aims to help food entrepreneurs  through all the steps of creating a business, from key concepts, strategies, and practical skills necessary in managing, owning, and operating a profitable food and beverage business.

Leading the team of experts is Chef John Cu-Unjieng, owner of Jam Foods & Co., and joining him are Anton Diaz, founder of Our Awesome Planet Blog & Paolo Sambile, along with a group of F&B professionals as guest speakers.

It is quite hard to get an accurate picture of the food business climate here in Manila. People have ideas and are motivated to start something, but they don’t know how and where to go to get the right information, and this is where we come in. What we want to do in this seminar is to present an accurate picture to potential food entrepreneurs so they could avoid the costly mistakes. “says  Cu-Unjieng

He adds: “We will not just focus on the planning, execution, and survival of the food business, but we also want potential entrepreneurs to have a good understanding of the issues crucial to deciding to start the business. We will provide a reality check for them.
