Where does the workshop take place?

It will take place at a venue in Central Harrogate.  Clear directions will be given to the venue.

Is Lunch included?

On the first day, you will participate in a food tour so you will enjoy the equivalent of a long lunch on that day. We will provide lunch on the second day as well as tea and coffee.

What about accommodation?

There is no shortage of good accommodation in Harrogate and we have our own accommodation partners we can recommend.

What will I take away from the workshop?

You will take away the manual provided and all the course notes for you to be able to refer to while running  your own business.

Do I need to do the post workshop coaching?

It is not compulsory, but many do find it invaluable to have that extra ongoing support to push the business forward.

Do I need any previous business experience?

No, enthusiasm and willingness to succeed are key ingredients to succeed. You will find that many of your skills and experience you have gathered through life will be useful and can be applied to running your own business.

Does it take a large investment to start a food tour?

No, beyond the cost of the workshop, you will need some working capital for everyday costs and marketing but these are very low in comparison to other start ups.

Do I need to devote a lot of time to running the business?

Like with any venture, the more you put in, the more you get out of it. However, with a Food Tour Operation, you control how much time you put into it and it can easily fit around other responsibilities.
