13sep9:00 amPlanning, Strategy and Storytelling: Conversation Around Building Something Bigger than Yourself

Event Details

An informal group discussion / Q&A session to inspire building food-based businesses beyond a part-time gig.

Key takeaways from this session include:

  • An expert’s quick-takes on your developing enterprise
  • Industry-based data insights to direct your goals and planning efforts
  • Connecting stories and ideas to value drivers and numbers
  • Improved awareness of mapping today’s efforts to long-term value creation


Join Jesse Gillett, a valuator and consultant who has studied countless food and beverage businesses, including restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, consumer-packaged-goods, breweries, and liquor stores, to name a few.  He’ll prompt thoughtful discussion around topics like, “How are you planning beyond this week, month or year?”  “Where are you avoiding opportunities, investments, or missing out?” and “What is your relationship with financial data? Jesse conservatively estimates he has evaluated over 500 New England businesses.  While not all have been food based businesses, they represent an incredibly wide range of business successes, survival stories and failures.  Let Jesse help you develop the conversation from part-time to all in!
