From Spark to Stores: Bringing a Singular Idea to Market

unnamed-21Have you ever had a tightly focused niche idea that just might be worth pursuing?  Nearly everyone has had that one idea that feels like it fills a hole in the marketplace. But how do you take it from idea to reality? That entrepreneurial spirit runs in the Lock family.

Dame Stephanie Lock is the founder of Ready to Roll Dough, a super-premium pastry crust business. Her sweet and savory organic all-butter crusts are sold at Whole Foods Markets across Chicago.

Stephanie’s drive was instilled in her by her mom, Joyce Lock, who is the creator of the popular “Foodie Fight” trivia game. We will hear their stories in this conversation about what it means to have an idea for a single, focused product and what it takes to get that idea into a marketable reality.

After the discussion, we’ll snack on some sweet and savory pies and play a few friendly rounds of Foodie Fight!  Just in time for the holidays, every ticket includes one disk of Ready to Roll Dough and your own Foodie Fight game!
When:  Sunday, November 17, 3-5:30 p.m.
Where:  The home of Dame Stacey Ballis, 2819 W Logan Blvd,  Chicago
Limited to 16 attendees
Tickets: $40 for Dames; $50 for non-members. This is an awesome event for guests! Get your tickets here.
