June 20, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

We are SUPER EXCITED to be hosting this upcoming workshop for an insider’s view of starting and scaling a food business.
Andy McCarthy, co-founder of the Southeast’s most popular popsicle company King of Pops, will be moderating the class and leading the panel discussion. After 10 years of operation and recently exiting his company, he’s transitioned into advising businesses and is loaded with information on the good, bad and ugly of running, starting, and scaling an iconic food business.
Mike Woliansky, owner at No Evil Foods in Asheville, will be on the Q&A experts panel talking about his startup journey from environmental sustainability eating experiment to the national distribution of his plant based ‘meats’ brand.
Jennifer Ferrebee, founder of Verde, will be there too sharing experiences growing her business from concept to the fast casual salad empire it is today.
Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with some of the most successful food entrepreneurs in the Southeast! We expect seats to fill up quickly with this line-up, so go ahead and snag your spot today. Registration is $15 and includes lunch from MHK’s newest resident caterer, MadB Catering and Events.
