Building Successful Business Relationships Workshop Details

The Building Successful Business Relationships workshop will feature Mike Rakes, owner of local feta cheese spread brand Philia Foods. Mike, a 2014 Minnesota Cup semi-finalist who has taken his brand from the farmers' market to over 70 regional retail stores, will share his experience creating successful relationships with key players in the good food business universe. Learn from Mike's experience working with co-packers, suppliers, retailers, farmers' markets, and more.
Jambor Heyman attorneys Jen & Amanda will provide attendees with useful strategies for using contracts to create a roadmap for mutually beneficial business relationships and will explain how to identify and improve contract "danger zones" that can open food businesses to legal liability and expense. Find out how to create an enforceable agreement, and how to decide whether a contract should be reviewed by an attorney.

Join us for happy hour on March 31 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Eastlake Craft Brewery in the Midtown Global Market, and enjoy appetizers provided by Tastebud Tart. Click here to register for the Building Successful Business Relationships workshop.
