Black Food & Dessert Expo, LLC

We are a dedicated team of entrepreneurs who want to specifically support, empower and uplift black and brown entrepreneurs that have a food business, talent or product idea. We host the Expo exclusively to exhibit and showcase those black owned businesses that do not have a brick and mortar location or food truck. Additionally we facilitate a series of classes that help entrepreneurs grow their food business both locally and virtually.

 

Statistics continuously show that the Black population have tremendous buying power (Nielson estimated $1.7 trillion in 2017) yet very little money is spent with other Black business owners. Also non-blacks have a perception that our products may be low quality or less valuable. Let’s strengthen our communities’ by enriching these businesses and building a network.
 

Join us at one our Expos as we pour into our own communities and showcase the amazing culinary talents of local black entrepreneurs. Our Expo will be your chance to sample, purchase and support black owned businesses. Find your next caterer, private chef or business partner.
