Peter Hesseldenz recently participated in the second “Romance or Ruin – Musings on the Food Biz” workshop. This event was part of series of entrepreneurial presentations, sponsored by Smiley Pete Publishing, on how to get started in the food business. The topic for this installment was starting a food truck and was held at the West Sixth Brewery.
The event began with a panel discussion featuring local food truck operators, a representative from the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government, and a volunteer from SCORE, an organization which assists new entrepreneurs. After the discussion, the workshop participants visited break-out sessions. Peter spoke with many of the attendees about entrepreneurial resources and research assistance available at UK Libraries.
In preparation for the event, Peter added a “Food Trucks” box to the “Starting a Restaurant” tab on his Entrepreneurship libguide: http://libguides.uky.edu/content.php?pid=129926&sid=3362047
Peter also participated in the first workshop in the series, which was held in December on starting a restaurant and he will also take part in the final three (two of which will be held here in William T. Young Library) – starting a bar, starting a franchise, and taking your food to market:
