Mentorship AND Access
Black Restaurant Accelerator Program
The PepsiCo Foundation teamed up with the National Urban League to create the Black Restaurant Accelerator, a program that will boost 500 Black-owned businesses in 12 cities across the U.S. over the next five years. With a $10MM grant, we’ll provide current and aspiring Black restaurateurs with training, mentorship and access to capital. Plus, National Urban League Entrepreneurship Centers will take an instant and long-term view on addressing existing barriers Black entrepreneurs face by pairing participants with advisors and PepsiCo employee volunteers.
