Periodically I receive information about media opportunities for specific industries or businesses run by owners with specific backgrounds, challenges or unique solution sets. Today I received the following which someone out there may qualify for:
A new Food Network series is looking for FOOD ENTREPRENEURS. Specifically, people who have left their previous career to start a new restaurant (or similar business).
- Must have little-to-no prior professional culinary experience.
- Must be planning to open a brick-and-mortar space where there will be walk-in customers (restaurant, bakery, sandwich shop, etc.).
- Must be aiming to open between now and autumn 2012.
Those chosen will receive culinary & business coaching from Bobby Flay (a chef, restaurateur, and fixture on the Food Network) as well as invaluable national publicity.
Those interested that fit the guidelines please email the following: Outline your timeline, budget, menu, team, and especially what’s at stake for you in this endeavor (why you are doing it and what risks, financial as well as personal, you are taking). We are highly interested in the “human-interest” angle of your story.
We’ve also set up a Twitter account- https://twitter.com/#!/RockShrimpProd and a Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Bobby-Flay-Project/285496171463077.
We’ll be accepting people’s stories through February, and are casting nationally.
For more information or question, contact Heather Brigss.
