Learn the local health code regulations that govern the Colorado mobile food industry before you dive in!

This month’s Foodie Friday is the first in a four-part series covering everything you need to know to start a mobile food business in Western Colorado. This first webinar in the series allows you to ask any and all questions about how health codes relate to mobile food units, answered directly by local Montrose County health inspector, Gina Simpson. It is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required. There is no cost for this first part in the series – the full series is only $45.

Not only are food trucks and mobile food units trending in the food industry offering unique and creative concepts and the ability to bring products to target markets rather than waiting for customers to come to a brick and mortar, they also allow startup food businesses to launch an idea with lower overhead costs and test products in a variety of markets.

For this comprehensive workshop series the West Central SBDC is partnering with Joseph Kean, an industry consultant and owner of Homestead Hut, a mobile food unit in Gunnison. Joseph designed his food trailer from the ground up to meet all regulatory requirements and to be a versatile unit that can be utilized by other food businesses and chefs and as an educational tool for helping people understand how to build an optimal mobile food business.

In this four-part series, we will explore all aspects of starting and operating a mobile food business in Western Colorado covering these topics and much more:

Speaker(s): Gina Simpson, Montrose County Health Department Callie Koch, West Central SBDC James Lammers, The Business Cultivator
