FaB Milwaukee, the Milwaukee 7 food and beverage industry network, celebrated the winner of the Hottest Kitchen Entrepreneur Contest at its Summer Forum, held at Lakefront Brewery on July 24.

Sponsored by Reliable Water Services, a provider of hot water services to Wisconsin restaurants, the contest attracted aspiring entrepreneurs from around the state with innovative ideas for a food business.

"We're always exploring opportunities to help entrepreneurs," said FaB Advisory Council member Peter Gottsacker, who was a judge for the competition and is president of food ingredient company Wixon in St. Francis.

The contest between the three finalists was held at MATC on July 24 and marked the re-opening of MATC’s student-run restaurant, Cuisine. The event also celebrated the launch of MATC’s Entrepreneurship Center, a new technical diploma program that helps entrepreneurs launch their business concepts. 

Bree Schumacher of Dousman was the grand prize winner with her skinny dinner starter concept that featured an Italian flair and kale as the primary ingredient, perfect for busy moms who are looking to provide their families with fast, healthy and skinny dinners. 

Schumacher received $2,500 in seed money from Reliable to start her business, an "entrepreneurial consultation package” from MATC, professional cookware and knives from Boelter Superstore and a two-hour private meeting with food industry executives from FaB Milwaukee.
