Calling all restaurants! We’re on a mission to lower the barriers to success for food startups, and boy have we got an opportunity for you. Today, we’re psyched to announce the launch our new restaurant startup bootcamp The Power of Brand: Growing Your Restaurant, along with a very special offer from our friends at ShopKeep.
Taught by former Union Square Hospitality Group CMO Felicia Stingone, this first-of-its-kind bootcamp will teach restaurants how to use brand as a business tool to strengthen your restaurant marketing, operations and culture. By the end of the day, you will define your brand and develop a brand framework to drive smarter, faster business decision-making, such as whether to open a new restaurant, publish a cookbook or pursue licensing opportunities. The day will culminate with an intimate discussion with industry heavyweights, including Danny Meyer, Founder and CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group, Richard Coraine, Senior Managing Partner, Business Development and Consulting at Union Square Hospitality Group and other special guests to be announced shortly.
Sounds awesome, right? Well, it gets even better. We’re thrilled to be partnering with ShopKeep, the cloud-based small business technology provider trusted by more than 10,000 small business owners to manage retail shops and restaurants with iPads, to offer 25 restaurants a full scholarship ($399 value) to the bootcamp. ShopKeep shares our vision for helping small businesses succeed and grow, which is why we’re so exciting to be working with them.
