Our Food Business Incubator

Our two-year incubator program supports entrepreneurs in launching their food business by providing affordable commercial kitchen and retail kiosk space, as well as connections to market channels and building necessary skills and experience to grow a stable business.

Incubator participants are part of a business network—they meet regularly with other participants, share responsibilities in maintaining the kitchen space, and work regularly with a business coach.

Once accepted into the program, entrepreneurs receive help with required permits, licenses and insurance, marketing needs, and a basic business plan.
