THE ENTREPRENUERSHIP CENTER

Black Restaurant Accelerator

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many industries, but none have experienced more immediate effects than the food and beverage industry. Restaurants and foodservice businesses have especially faced challenges ranging from restrictions, employee safety and health, supply chain disruption, and more. That is why we are excited to announce the launch of the Restaurant Resilience program, a new program produced in partnership with the Urban League of Greater Atlanta.

The Restaurant program, powered by the Atlanta Restaurant Association, is a 5-week virtual course for owners and operators of restaurants and foodservice businesses with a focus on stabilization and growth. The course covers everything from navigating regulations, how to build and improve your financial foundation, marketing to your customers, human resources, and more.

This program is being generously sponsored by the Urban League of Greater Atlanta at no cost to attendees.
