The Sweet Route to Dessertpreneurship

What’s the first thing we do when there’s a professional interest we want to pursue—such as entrepreneurship for example—or a skill we want to elevate? We look for the best route to help us achieve that goal. For professional dessert artisans, the perfect route to “dessertpreneurship“—dessert-based entrepreneurship—is in Campbellfield, Victoria, which houses our PreGel International Training Center (ITC) — a learning environment of skill, knowledge, and competency blended with dessert recipe innovation and fun.

So, what would make you the perfect candidate for training at our PreGel ITC? Having feelings of insecurity due to a lack of experience, or concluding that a training class is not necessary because you’ve been a professional dessert artisan for so long.



How so?

PreGel’s in-depth classes are designed to fit all skill levels from beginner to advanced, and provide a broad understanding of how to create artisanal desserts and build a successful business based on quality. The signature approach is to provide students with both a solid classroom learning experience and hands-on instruction.

“We are extremely excited about the classes at our PreGel International Training Center,” says Mike Downing, corporate pastry chef for PreGel. “Our team of chef instructors put a lot of work into creating a diverse curricula that will accommodate enthusiastic chefs and decision-makers, as well as newcomers to the world of pastry and frozen desserts. The courses we offer were developed with the long-term success of our students in mind, as well as the idea that PreGel is an overall resource in all things related to pastry, frozen desserts, and beverages,” Chef Downing concludes.

PreGel ITC

The overall goal of the PreGel ITC is to make sure that no student leaves its classes disappointed or ill-equipped to succeed in business. Therefore, our Victorian establishment (there are 29 locations worldwide) teach the latest techniques in a fundamental range of traditional and trending dessert topics, made to capture the attention of current and aspiring dessertrepreneurs looking to offer difference.
