Every small food business needs thousands of people to try their product, but very few have the time, energy, and/or personnel to hand out samples in grocery stores every week. Some go as far as contracting actors’ guilds to operate their product demonstrations. To meet this growing need, the Small Batch Demo Service was born. Mitten Bites grew into a business to offer real-world experience for young Detroiters to hone their crafts and acquire higher-level, resume-building skills. This new service builds upon these goals by employing tens of youth and creating thousands of youth employment hours (starting at $12.50/hr!)–all while helping fill local grocery stores with delicious local food products that support Detroit youth.
