Alchemy Kitchen is a business training program and incubator serving aspiring food entrepreneurs from low-income populations in Sacramento. Alchemy Kitchen consists of two phases that build business acumen.
Alchemist Microenterprise Academy (AMA) is a 10-week business training course that teaches the basics of starting a food business. Topics covered range from financial literacy and legal business structures to recipe development and safe food handling. AMA is currently taking applications until May 12, 2019.
The Incubator Program is open to select graduates of AMA and provides in-depth assistance customized to specific business needs- including technical assistance, mentorship and low-cost kitchen access.
With additional in-kind support from Capsity Inc., (a California Benefit Corporation) we created a business plan for the successful creation of Alchemy Kitchen.
