InnovationX Visiting Mentor Office Hours: Food Business Basics Q&A with David Ryusaki
If you are working on a food business, if David's workshop on April 21 piqued your interest, or if you couldn't make it to the workshop, this informal Q&A hour is for you!

Bring your questions about the practical side of starting a food business, finding your niche, navigating food-specific regulations, and avoiding common pitfalls.

Facilitated by David Ryusaki (he/him), Program Coordinator for the Global Community Kitchen (GCK) in Student Experiences & Engagement (SEE) at OSU.

Meet David:

David has over 14 years experience in many aspects of the food industry, as General Manager of an off-site rental company, prep/line cook & expediter for a small restaurant, Busser/Food Runner/Server for fine dining restaurant, and banquet style catering.

David's work with the GCK involves working with the Benton County Health inspector to operate one of the larger commercial kitchens on campus. His focus is on supporting cultural expression through food with student organizations, but is always looking for opportunities to expand the program.

David holds a degree in Nutrition & Food Management from Oregon State University '04 and is a proud Beaver! He grew up in Hawai'i and landed back at Oregon State in Fall 2014. In his spare time, he enjoys aspiring to be a foodie, swimming, body surfing, growing vegetables in the spring/fall, hiking and picking all the wonderful berries Oregon has to offer every year!

All students are invited to join us to satisfy your food business curiosity.

This workshop will also support students who are developing an idea to work on in Launch Academy.


This InnovationX Business Idea Development Studio Visiting Mentor Office Hour is co-presented by the Global Community Kitchen and by InnovationX, OSU's Center of Excellence for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
