You’ve got a food business. We’ve got a Toolkit.

You’ve got a great idea for a food business, and you’re taking the leap to make your recipe a reality. We’ve created a curated group of services to help build your food business. We’re sure you have some questions, and you can see the most frequently asked questions below. If there is anything else on your mind, feel free to reach out to [email protected].

Why make a Toolkit?

We’ve spent the past few months asking hundreds of food makers and aspiring food entrepreneurs what they needed to build a business. There was one theme that kept coming up, even if you can make a great food product, there are so many aspects outside of production you need to make a successful business. We wanted to simplify the process of figuring out what services a food maker should use.

Where’s the value?

To make the Toolkit something special, we know we needed to do more than simply give out suggestions for recommended services. We spent the past couple of months working and negotiating on your behalf to bring down the cost of our curated services. Those savings come in the form of free trial periods so you can know it is a service you want to percentages off for the lifetime use of the service. Right now we have six partners, which can all be seen on our page Become a Member, and the list keepings growing every week.

How do we choose partners?

Every service listed on Foodboro has been fully vetted as a company that we have used and love. While there are tons of options of services out there, you can rest assure that we have taken that time to select only one per category which will provide you the best value for the price you are paying. If you have any suggestions, please don’t hesitate to reach out and let us know so we can start the vetting process to find out if they’re a fit for the Foodboro community.

How much does it cost?

To access the Toolkit, you must have either have an Individual or Organization membership, which will be priced at $10 and $79 per month respectively in 2019. In the meantime, as we grow our list of partners, we are offering a Founding Membership at only $10 for 6 months as an Individual, and $79 for 6 months as an Organization.

Individual Membership vs Organization Membership

There is only one main difference between Individual and Organization Memberships, the ability to grant access to other companies. As an Individual Member, you will have full access to all of our partner relations and content. As an Organization Member, you can provide Individual Memberships to every company that is a member of your organization. Organization Memberships are perfect for economic development agencies, shared kitchen spaces or food-related associations.
