Entrepreneurs

Put your culinary training to work for you—as an entrepreneur in a foodservice-related business. In addition to opening your own restaurant or pastry shop, you can start an enterprise that offers products or services that chefs need or that taps into the public’s growing interest in food and cooking. Depending on the nature of your business, you’ll manage manufacturing, marketing, sales, distribution, purchasing, and finance. As in any entrepreneurial venture, you’ll need to combine a marketable idea with ambition, business acumen, and a lot of hard work.
