The City of Phoenix and Thrive Consultancy, Inc. are partnering to launch their free 2023 spring Sustainable Cooperative Food Business Training Program to Phoenix residents interested in collaborating to start a sustainable cooperative food business.

“This 10-week program is a great opportunity for local aspiring food entrepreneurs to connect and receive training at no cost. We are excited to be a part of a program that gives back to our community and supports sustainability,” said Environmental Programs Administrator Nancy Allen. “Past participants have teamed up to design food-based businesses such as sustainable farms, food trucks, and more proving the value of the program.”

During the program, participants will work with their peers to create business plans and develop start-up budgets and marketing pitches for a co-developed sustainable cooperative food business idea. Mentorship and business tools will be available to program attendees to help set them up for success.

Bi-weekly training sessions are held in downtown Phoenix beginning Jan. 30 through April 5 on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5-7 p.m. Only 25 spaces are open for the program and all participants must attend for all ten weeks to complete the program.

Interested applicants can visit the Thrive Consultancy, Inc website to apply by Jan. 15. ​
