Marketing your food business

What is your brand? What makes it different? How do you engage with your community? What is your target market?

Learn some of the essentials of small business marketing at this workshop with Mitchell Stern, who's helped large and small companies (Toronto Underground Market, Hot Bunzz) figure out these questions and grow their reach. A great opportunity to engage with like-minded food entrepreneurs.
