Give a Little, Get a Lot

Opening your own business can be daunting. It's one thing to know how to cook or bake, but an entire other matter to manage employees, keep a ledger, and navigate those hairy legal concerns (we know, there are a ton!). To the rescue, at least for getting through all the legalities: VLA (Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts).

This class will give you the ins and outs of the important issues that you will need to know to open your own establishment or start up a catering company. And the proceeds will benefit The Friends of The FCI, which means that as you go forward, you can be giving a little back, too.

The Friends of the FCI is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable corporation that raises money for scholarships and financial aid to FCI career students based on financial need and ability to complete the program they desire. The organization was founded based on the belief that money should not stand between talented, motivated, deserving students and a first-rate culinary education.
