People have ideas and are motivated to start something, but they don’t know how and where to go to get the right information, and this is where we come in. What we want to do in this seminar is to present an accurate picture to potential food entrepreneurs so they could avoid the costly mistakes. “says Cu-Unjieng He adds: “We will not just focus on the planning, execution, and survival of the food business, but we also want potential entrepreneurs to have a good understanding of the issues crucial to deciding to start the business. We will provide a reality check for them.” To register and other inquiries, please call or SMS Rache at +63 917 531-8949 or email us at email@example.com.
