Off Campus

Whether you are a startup entrepreneur hoping to enter the food & beverage industry or a food service professional thinking of expanding into the packaged, retail space, this is a must-attend academy! Created by former Kraft Foods retail branding expert, Lauren Young, the Get Shelf Made program earned a 2015 Chicago Innovation Award nomination and is exclusively delivered in Austin by trained facilitators at the Texas State Small Business Development Center.

The purpose of this training is to help early-stage food entrepreneurs craft their unique brand story to build sales, connect with retail buyers and achieve the dream of becoming a "shelf-made" success.
