Eat Street comes to Hamilton

A huge congratulations to Gorilla Cheese for their recent success in attracting Food Network’s Eat Street to Hamilton to feature one of the city’s favourite food trucks (http://www.thespec.com/news/local/article/770103–eat-street-comes-to-hamilton). Not only will the feature be a great profile for Gorilla Cheese, but we believe for the city as well. Did you know that Gorilla Cheese is one of the Hamilton Small Business Enterprise Centre’s (SBEC) success stories? The SBEC played a role in assisting the team at Gorilla Cheese with their business plan, commercial licensing and kick-off marketing. If you don’t know, Hamilton’s SBEC provides the information and tools that entrepreneurs need to grow their businesses. Operating as an arm of the Economic Development Division of the City of Hamilton, the Centre is a one-stop source for business information, guidance and professional advice on starting and running a successful business – for both start-up and growing businesses.

Maybe you’ll be the next star food truck, or salon, or architect or whatever you want to be. If you want to start your own business in Hamilton, visit us at:
