Free Business 101 seminar for cafes and restaurants

Produced by the City of Sydney

If you’re thinking about opening a cafe, restaurant, bodega, or any business where people can enjoy a meal, this seminar will introduce you to the basics.

City staff will tell you all you need to know about the regulatory requirements, an expert food online marketer from Yelp! will help you put your best plate forward and the winner of the SMH Good Food Guide 2014 ‘Best bar with food’ Tapa Vino category shares their insights.

About the seminars

The Business 101 seminars are designed for both existing and budding small business owners who aren’t sure where to start, or may just need some advice on how to take the next step to grow.

The free seminars provide an overview of the common issues involved in setting up a small business and offer practical advice. They are also a great opportunity to ask City of Sydney staff and industry experts technical questions about DAs, licensing and other types of applications, as well as talk about grants and other support the City offers.

You will meet others in your field, those just starting out and established professionals who have successfully gone through the process.

Our 2015 calendar covers general and industry-specific topics. The seminars sell out fast, so book your spot now to avoid disappointment.



Wednesday 1 July 2015 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm
