Testimonials

Can-Do Kitchen provided me with the necessary information to grow my business through business workshops, vendor opportunities and contacts with local food distributors. The staff is accessible and often inquires if there are any additional tools or information I need to help my business grow.

Owner, Perfect Blend Coffee

Thanks to Can-Do Camp, we’re opening our own brick and mortar coffee shop in Battle Creek (our hometown) only a year after completing the 12-week course. Without the education and support from Can Do, we would not be anywhere near where we are today.
