Fooducopia.com exists to fuel that small business growth by connecting food entrepreneurs and local farmers to customers across the country.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 21, 2010
Small business is the bread and butter of the US economy. With the recent passage of the Small-Business Bill in the US Senate, entrepreneurs can benefit from more just the financial supports offered by this Bill. Fooducopia.com complements the opportunities afforded by this legislation by shouldering some of the risk and constraints that usually confront small-scale food producers.
Fooducopia.com offers food producers the opportunity to create their own virtual stores where they can introduce their individual products and personal stories to a national audience. Vendors can maintain their individuality and focus on their specialty products, while Fooducopia.com works to expose these products to a larger market.
“No matter what side of the political landscape you fall on, if there’s one thing nearly all lawmakers agree on,” says Tim Lymberopoulos, co-founder of Fooducopia.com, “it’s that most job growth comes from small businesses. Fooducopia.com exists to fuel that small business growth by connecting food entrepreneurs and local farmers to customers across the country.”
In fact, small businesses make up 99.7 percent of all employer firms, they employ just over half of all private sector employees, and 52 percent are home-based, according to the Small Business Administration (SBA).
Lymberopoulos regularly meets with food producers at farmer’s markets across the country, teaching them how to expand their businesses in a cost efficient way.
“We’ve created a win-win scenario with Fooducopia.com,” explains Lymberopoulos. “We shoulder some of the risk for the food producers by helping to eliminate the stress of growing pains, and we give customers the opportunity to experience a wide variety of artisan foods made by real people – not factories. Customers know exactly where their food is coming from.”
Fooducopia.com was founded in 2008 as a means to bridge the gap between small-scale producers and consumers. Small-scale food producers have an opportunity to expand their businesses in a cost efficient way, and customers are offered a respite from factory-produced food.
