Restaurant Recovery Program

Message from The Biz Foundry:

‘The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many industries, but none have experienced more immediate effects than the food and beverage industry. Restaurants and food service businesses have especially faced challenges ranging from restrictions, employee safety and health, supply chain disruption, and more. That is why we are excited to announce the launch of the Restaurant Recovery program, a new program produced in partnership with The Biz Foundry, TSBDC, Cookeville Chamber of Commerce, and Cityscape.’


‘The Restaurant Recovery program, powered by Proof, is a 4-week virtual course for owners and operators of restaurants and foodservice businesses with a focus on stabilization and growth. The course covers everything from navigating regulations, how to build and improve your financial foundation, marketing to your customers, human resources, and more.’
