Catering Company Feasibility Study
Spring 2000

To increase commercial development and create employment opportunities, TRP sought to determine the feasibility of its becoming a business owner in the Pilsen community. At TRP’s request, the City Design Center conducted a business and marketing study to evaluate the feasibility of developing a catering company.
Susan Petti, TRP’s Supportive Housing Associate noted with appreciation: “We had an idea to create a small catering business with the women in our program who love to cook; but it was only an idea. Jackie, the research assistant, helped us frame the project and take the first steps to make it a reality.”
