New Business Start-up
$500 for a 2 hour consultation with up to 3 people.

Opening a successful raw food business can be a daunting task. Getting the guidance you need before opening the business can mean the difference between success and failure. Having successfully owned and operated Raw Soul we can offer guidance through every phase of starting your business. Perhaps you want to open a café/restaurant, become a caterer or package your products and sell them to retailers.

Each of these businesses requires certain skills, knowledge, qualifications and temperament. Operating a small business means wearing many different hats. The more prepared you are, the less stressful and more enjoyable your business will be which will lead to your ultimate success.

We offer guidance in the following areas:

  • Review and evaluation of your business plan
  • Analyzing your market and defining your product
  • Legal Requirements
  • Evaluating your Assets
  • Analysis of Competition
  • Planning a menu
  • Startup Costs
  • Financing Options
  • Establishing Policies and Procedures
  • Recruiting, Hiring and Training Staff
  • Management
  • Inventory
  • Marketing
  • Setting up an Accounting System

During the consultation, we will work with you in formulating a plan that covers the above topics and any additional items not included in the above list. This is a working session that will prepare you to move forward toward opening your business.
