So You Want To Open A Restaurant: Speed Coaching Event For Small Businesses

Sam Adams is hosting a speed coaching event at the Reading Terminal Market this Monday.


If you’re inspired by the recent restaurant boom in Philadelphia or impatiently waiting for your business to take off, Sam Adams may be able to help you out.

Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream campaign is coming to Philly on Monday, March 16 at the Reading Terminal Market. They, along with Fair Food Philly, are hosting a “speed coaching” event, which is sort of like speed dating, but instead of telling someone how many cats you have, you talk about your business model and professionals give you advice.

So actually nothing like speed dating. Except that it all happens very quickly.

The event is open to any food, beverage or craft brewing entrepreneurs, who will participate in six 20-minute sessions with business experts from Sam Adams and Fair Food, as well as local professionals.

The event begins at 7 pm. Once it begins, participants can sign up for the consulting stations that are most relevant to their company. Topics include sales and distribution, packaging, finance, e-commerce, and marketing. Business owners can bring any questions or concerns they want feedback on to discuss during the consulting sessions.

Last year’s winners of Samuel Adam’s National Pitch Room Event, Rynn and David Caputo of Caputo Brothers Creamery, will also attend the event. They won $10,000 and a year of free coaching from Sam Adams for their business.
