our 5 step foodiefesto

1. We believe the world is a better place when people are doing what they love.

2. We know that running a business is pretty hard work. You need the balls and the know how to make things happen. So, it's not really a surprise that 9 out of 10 startups don't make it to their first birthday.

3. We reckon that most of them fail not because their founders weren't keen enough or because they didn't have a good idea. They just lacked the knowledge, experience and clarity they needed to make the most of it.

4. And we think that isn't a good enough reason for not being able to do what you love.

5. So we created Kitchen Table Projects. A starting point for food entrepreneurs to bring their vision to life in an affordable, rational and sustainable way, with the people who know how to get things done.

whose idea was this?

Hello! I’m Tara, the founder of Kitchen Table Projects.

I started Kitchen Table Projects by putting my two favourite things together: food and making things happen. Having successfully run my own food business, I know how challenging being a food entrepreneur can be! I also know how rewarding it is when you can make a living out of what you love. Wouldn't it be good if more people could have the opportunity to succeed?

I think having a great idea is the easy part. And having a fiery passion for what you really, really love doing isn't so hard either. What's tough when you're running a food business is figuring out what to do, how you're going to do it and who's going to help you get there.

Running a food business has its own industry specific problems too and not all startups are the same. Food entrepreneurs need something more focused on them and what keeps them awake at night. Something that really understands who they are, what they're all about and what they need to stand out.

Kitchen Table Projects is about giving food entrepreneurs the tools and opportunities to turn their visions into a reality.

What we've been up to so far...

We started our journey in June 2015, when we popped up at Old Street station with our first retail incubator programme, the Artisan Springboard. Since then, we've popped up at Oxford Circus, run lots of networking nights, foodie parties and attended many more along the way. Most importantly, we've got to know an incredible community of producers, industry experts and food lovers. If you'd like to get to know them and join our community, you can check out the events we're holding this year.
