It only takes a few minutes to enter and winning either of these food contests would be a boon to any small business:
1) For those wanting to grow their food businesses, enter the Daily Candy contest: “Each winner will receive $10,000 each, be flown to New York City for a one-day small business intensive with industry bigwigs and a party in their honor on October 28, and get (at least) fifteen minutes of fame.” Most importantly, once you’ve been candied your life will never be sweeter.
Just today the Wall Street Journal published a story about women transitioning from more traditional careers into starting fun* food businesses – the time honored story of so many new food businesses. And now imagine if they won.
*One of them “drives a pink Scion she calls “The Fudgemobile,” with the Fat Ass donkey logo.”
2) And for those focused on “real” food, whatever the business goal, the Good Food Awards are a must enter for makers of beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, pickles and preserves that are exceptionally delicious and also support sustainability and social good.
