Great Startup Bakeoff

Are you a teenager who has what it takes to become Spokane’s next top bakery? Put your entrepreneurship and baking skills to the test at River City Kitchen and StartUp Spokane’s first ever Great Startup Bake Off, a three-day competition for bakers and businesspeople 14 to 18 years old. From Friday, May 31 to Sunday, June 2, 10 teams of teens will get a budget, advice from industry leaders, and a maximum of five ingredients to maximize profits at the Baked Goods Market hosted by Spokane’s Central Library on the final day. No word on whether Paul Hollywood will be there, but each team will get to keep the money they earn. The only requirement is that participants have a Food Worker Card. Only 50 spots are available, so register soon. If you’d like to compete but are over 18, keep an eye on River City Kitchen and StartUp Spokane for future adult events.
