2-session Food Business Class (WBC 9/21/22 and 9/28/22)

September 21, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Duration: 3 hours


Join seasoned restaurant, cafe, and bakery operator Tiffany Lach in this 2-session Food Business Class! You will learn the business basics to walk away with a better understanding of the ins and outs of a food business. We will talk about general business permits and building a solid team for those looking to start a restaurant, cafe, bakery, food truck, small-scale food product, or simply a catering or pop-up biz.

The classes are held virtually over Zoom. We invite you to have your camera on for the majority of each class to foster collaboration and joint learning.

This 2-day session is a preview of our 4-Week Food Business course that will begin in November. This class is not a requirement but is highly encouraged to attend.

Instructor: Tiffany Lach

There is a new way to register! You can now register using your client profile. By setting up a client profile, you will not have to fill out the same personal information for each workshop you register for, making it faster and easier in the long run!

  • In the Client Portal, go to the Calendar tab (top left) and select 2-session Food Business Class (WBC 9/21/22 and 9/28/22), click enroll, answer the questions, and submit! You will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link.

b) If you don’t have a Client Portal profile, create one at this link. Make sure to use the same email address you have used in the past with Renaissance. You may change it later, but this allows our system to recognize you.

If you do not, you will need to fill one out before you can see the Calendar tab.
