The culinary entrepreneurship program brings together small business management directors with culinary skills for students who want to own their own business in the food industry. Students demonstrate mastery of sanitation concepts and practices in food services. By definition, a gastronomic or culinary entrepreneur is simply someone who starts their own business in the food or culinary industry. It could be someone who creates the next meal kit for a special diet (for example, vegetarian ketogenic foods), someone who buys a food truck and launches their own small food business, or someone who opens their own catering company.
Entrepreneurs in the food sector can address a challenge they see in the food system by combining food, business and social entrepreneurship. The Culinary Entrepreneurship degree offers a unique combination of culinary and business modules that equip you with the skills to work (or set up your own business) in the food industry.
