“Foodiepreneur: The Business of Food” will give current and potential food entrepreneurs candid insights from the experts into one of the largest industries in our area. The goal of Foodiepreneur is to facilitate a real dialog about topics that are important to entrepreneurs in the food industry.

There will be a panel discussion with Esther Luongo Psarakis (Creator, Foodpreneur®), Paul Altero (Founder & Co-Owner, Bubbakoo’s Burritos) and Vicki Weiss (Owner, Mathis House Bed & Breakfast & Victorian Tea Room). There will also be an appreance made by OCC’s very own Sean Bips (Professional Chef Instructor, Hospitality Professor, and International Event Planner) who will offer valuable information to attendees about the industry.

These food industry experts have successfully navigated the process of launching and growing food businesses. They will discuss their backgrounds, successes, and challenges throughout the process while offering insight to fellow business owners.

A Q&A exchange will conclude this event.
