BENEFITING: Teen Living Programs, Inc.
My wife and I are in business to not only get our products known by all but we are raising money to open a FREE culinary school to teach disadvantaged youths how to cook and run their own food business.
Our mission is to establish a business model to teach (step by step) disadvantaged youths the art of making money by creating, developing, and implementing a sound profitable business by way of culinary arts. By providing free culinary education we will empower todays’ youths to create and implement worthwhile profitable food related businesses for tomorrow, which will financially support their dreams and their families.
Our goal is to get our products (Zoe's BBQ Sauces) on the market to generate revenue to start and run a successful after school culinary program for children.
Why are we choosing to go this route instead of just opening a culinary school? Well we believe that teaching someone how to cook and teaching them how to use those skills from a business persepective will help them more in the future than just teaching them how to cook.
So we are raising money for the first stage of our mission which is to get our products in various grocery stores so that this can be used as a model in our culinary program. We are raising $2,500 for now, if we raise more that will be awesome.
