Everything in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program was new to me... becoming bankable, branding, doing a pitch. We had ideas and vision, but now we know how to execute on them.

Business Overview

Challenges

Mel applied to the program to unlock the restaurant’s “wealth of potential” and growth and to create employment opportunities in the local community.

Results

Mel developed and is implementing a plan to sell the breakfast klub’s waffle mix and fried chicken coating both online and in stores.
