Welcome to The Food Craftsmen, I am Ryan Parker
Thank you so much for coming and hanging out with us at The Food Craftsmen. I created The Food Craftsmen for people just like you. You are an adventurer, excited about food, and more than likely have that feeling in the back of your head that you are ready to start your own food business.
I have lived in kitchens ever since I was a kid. I know how hard it is to be in the kitchen, making business work. Not just surviving, but thriving. I created The Food Craftsmen because I know just how important it is to keep the culture of hand-crafted, artisan food growing. Some have called it, “the hipster redemption”, this culture of creating is prevalent in places like Brooklyn, San Fransisco, and Austin. The good news it is spreading, and no longer do you need to have a tight fitting plaid flannel shirt and a wonderfully groomed mustache. The truth is, I am inspired by those folks, and the culture is spreading. It’s even heading into the heart of the Midwest, just check out Midwest Roots if you need proof. Kyle, the owner is a champion for artisanal food creators.
At Food Craftsmen we believe Artisan, Handcrafted Foods are the backbone of building a strong community and economy.
The Food Craftsmen is here to provide resources, and inspiration to get you moving in the right direction with your food business.
