Kitchen Relaunch is a five-week program partnering small restaurant owners with a team of creative, digitally-savvy ambassadors who provide the digital and design services businesses need to thrive. We aim to support BIPOC/womxn/minority-owned businesses at no cost to themselves for participation. We believe in the power and effectiveness of intergenerational collaborations to adapt to the urgent challenges of a COVID-19 world.
Empowering the local businesses that make our communities great.
As a restaurant owner in the program, you will be partnered with a team of ambassadors dedicated to working with you towards digital and design solutions. By the end of the program, your restaurant will be relaunched with a new website, online menu ordering, a digital payment platform, a strong social media presence, and other deliverables. The aim is to improve your sales, build a broader and larger customer base, and have you adapt to the challenges of the current food industry.
Supporting the next generation professionally and financially.
As an Ambassador in the program, you will have the opportunity to develop your skills in design, marketing, and communication, while building your business acumen and earning a stipend. The program will also be a great opportunity for you to engage with community members, build relationships with local businesses, and learn from their entrepreneurship.
The initial round of Kitchen Relaunch will run from October 2020 through November 2020. We are currently accepting nominations for up to 50 small businesses in Los Angeles, New York City, and New Haven, and appliactions for Ambassadors anywhere in the US.
