Milwaukee – Do you have a creative food or beverage business concept or early-stage business that could use a boost? If so, you may want to enter this year’s Hottest Kitchen Entrepreneur Challenge, a regional contest to find Wisconsin’s next great food entrepreneur. The Challenge is sponsored by Milwaukee Area Technical College, Reliable Water Services, a statewide provider of commercial water heaters, boilers and water softeners and FaB Wisconsin, the state’s food and beverage industry cluster network.

The Challenge features a start-up category for those with a new food business idea (not yet to market) and an early-stage category (5 years or under) food entrepreneurs who have launched but are looking for help to get to the next level.

Beginning April 4, aspiring chefs, home cooks and early stage food entrepreneurs throughout Wisconsin can enter online by clicking here. The site has contest rules and details.

The grand prize winner in each category will receive:

* $2,000 in seed money from Reliable Water Services

* Tuition for a 3-credit course at MATC during the 2016-2017 academic year

* Priceless private meeting with food industry executives serving on FaB Wisconsin’s advisory council and a one year membership in FaB Wisconsin

* Prize package worth $400 from Fein Brothers Restaurant Equipment & Supplies

Finalists will be selected in late May to participate in a final judging event in July 20 at MATC’s student-operated 6th Street Café.
