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.
Alchemist CDC, with in-kind support from Dr. Kristin Kiesel (from the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics – UC Davis), conducted a feasibility study to assess whether Alchemy Kitchen can be sustained in Sacramento. To read the entire feasibility study, click here.
With additional in-kind support from Capsity Inc., (a California Benefit Corporation) we created a business plan for the successful creation of Alchemy Kitchen.
In 2019, our Marketing Intern, Hasan Ridha, created a project Marketing Plan which can be accessed here.
