Food Fight 2020: Summer Business Pitch Competition

STARTedUP Richmond and The City of Richmond Parks Department are partnering together to provide an amazing opportunity for area High School students who have an interest in foodservice and owning their own business! On Thursday, April 30, 2020, we will be holding a competition for students to pitch their idea for a food service business that would be operated out of the Glen Miller Park concession stand. Individuals, or teams, will present their plan for the type of food being offered and how it will be operated. The winning pitch will receive start-up money and will be granted the use of the concession stand for the entire summer! Not only will the student(s) be able to keep any of the profits that they earn, but they will also be gaining incredible experience and knowledge by running your own business.
