Start a Home Kitchen Business (3 Weeks – 5/2/23)

May 2 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

Duration: Once a week for 3 weeks

San Mateo County has two ways of selling food from home. You can be a Cottage Food Operator or a Microenterprise Home Kitchen Operator (MEHKO). The type of you can sell is different and the way you can sell it is different.

Spend three weeks with us to define your business model and menu, understand the rules and regulations of opening and operating your MEHKO or cottage food business, and develop your marketing and pricing plan.

MEHKO and cottage food business are a great way to put your kitchen to work for you. Learn how to be successful from the start!

You can self-register using your Client Portal Profile. By setting up a client profile, you will be able to log in and self-register for most classes! 

a)  If you already have a Client Portal Profile, click the Register button below.

  • In the Client Portal, go to the Calendar tab (top left), select Start a Home Kitchen Business (3 Weeks – 5/2/23), click enroll, answer the questions, and submit!

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 already have an intake form on file, you’ll see the Calendar tab in the top left.

If you do not, you will need to fill one out before you can see the Calendar tab. It may also ask you to update your information.  The user interface isn’t perfect, so scroll up and click “Continue” or “Sign” to complete the forms.

Once the Calendar tab is visible, you can register. Go to the Calendar, select the class, click enroll to learn more, and register by clicking “submit”! You will receive a confirmation email.

If you have questions about the class or problems creating a client profile, please do not hesitate to email brc@rencenter.org or call Carlos Reyes at 650-829-4652.
