Growing your Italian Restaurant

Italian cuisine is still the most celebrated and widespread all over the world.  Every year the number of restaurants popping up around the globe inspired by the Italian food and wine culture is significantly increasing. However, new restaurants concepts many times lack in authenticity and the entrepreneurs miss the most relevant business basics expressly related to the food industry.

The ability to engage customers in a unique experience combining food, environment, people, and emotions in a sustainable business is the key managerial competence that this program aims to offer.

The objective of the program is to taste first hand the excellence of Italian haute cuisine, meeting the leading players of the industry and getting to know their success stories.

“Growing your Italian restaurant” is tailored for people who want to combine an intensive hands-on program with a leisure experience and the opportunity of living Bologna, the City of Food and its surroundings:

  • managers and entrepreneurs already working in the hospitality and restaurant industry
  • who wants to start up a successful entrepreneurial venture in the restaurant industry
  • international managers passionate about gastronomy and haute cuisine
  • all the ones that are passionate about made in Italy and high quality gastronomy and want to turn their passion in their professional future
