Resources for Food Businesses


Resources for Food Businesses

Food innovation is hot and competitive. Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs may not be prepared for the realities of entering this market. That's why Texas State SBDC developed two programs designed to help early-stage and growing food manufacturers improve their brand story, secure buyers’ attention and better navigate the unique aspects of the retail supply chain.

Both classes, based on in-depth field research and industry practice, introduce concepts that help entrepreneurs examine and choose between strategies, opportunities, business models, and operational plans—at every stage of growth within their business. Contact our resident food manufacturing expert and instructor of "Get Shelf Made" and "Shelf Mastery," Peg Richmond at peg.richmond@txstate.edu or 512-243-8636.
