April 2018

Tuesday, April 17
Food Biz Boot Camp (aka "How To Start A Small Food Business In Missoula") - 4/17 -5/15
6:30 PM
Moonlight Kitchens , 1951 Kensington Ave.

The Missoula food scene is booming and creative foodies are trying to get a piece of the pie - so to speak. Unfortunately, new entrepreneurs often jump into the fray without a clear idea of what all is involved in running a successful food business. Enter Food Biz Boot Camp!

For the second year running Moonlight Kitchens is offering "How to Start a Small Food Business in Missoula" ahead of the busy outdoor food season. "A good cook sees a long line at a food booth at the farmers market and thinks 'How hard can it be?' What they don't see is all the work behind the scenes to get that operation up and running" says Anne Little, co-owner of Moonlight Kitchens.

Date: Tuesdays April 17 - May 15 (5 evenings)

Time: 6:30-8:30pm

Location: Moonlight Kitchens

Address: 1951 Kensington Ave., Missoula, MT 59801

Moonlight Kitchens, located in the south Franklin-to-the-Fort neighborhood, rents commercial kitchen space to budding and experienced food businesses. "We have some people who come in with an organized business plan, solid financials, and a great product. And then we have those who don't. We want all of our clients to be successful and not lose their shirts."

In order to make that happen, a food business newbie needs a lot of information. The Boot Camp series provides that including presentations by a web designer, a banker, a food photographer, food and equipment suppliers, the Small Business Development Center, many others, and, of course, the Missoula City/County Health Dept.

"This is a cheap, fast way to hedge your bets and find out if you're ready to jump in with both feet or back off a little and give it some more time and thought." notes Little.

Tuition is $100/5-class series. Registration is online at Space is limited to 12 students.
