It's still possible to open your dream restaurant

Local entrepreneurs have an opportunity to get a leg up on their competition with the help of the UW Extension through a virtual event in early November. Starting a restaurant or other food business is never easy, but especially tricky in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 5th annual Edible Startup Summit helps address the common sticky points that new businesses have to find answers to if they want to have staying power. Sharon Lezberg from the Dane County Extension says it is invaluable to hear from others who have learned how to overcome those hurdles. 

For $25, you gain access to virtual sessions covering a range of topics. The sessions can be anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour, and participants are free to attend as many as they feel would be useful. Lezberg says the one breakout she recommends for everyone is the opportunity to present your business plan and have it critiqued by an industry veteran.
