Hi fellow food-trepreneurs! This Food and Beverage Business Strategy Meetup group is based in the Seattle area and focused on helping and supporting local food and beverage start-ups. Meetups will be a forum to discuss, learn and support each other by sharing personal experiences, ideas and strategies as well as a way to find solutions to common concerns . In our casual conversations, we will cover many topics, such as getting started, finding commercial kitchens, ingredient sources, recipe development, design, branding, trademark, manufacturing, packaging, distribution, financing, hiring staff, sales, and PR/marketing. Looking forward to hearing about and even sampling some great local items!
