Resources for Community/Incubator Kitchens

Throughout the past decade over 50 “kitchen incubators” have opened across the country and many more are in the planning stages. By mitigating start-up costs and providing a nurturing environment, business incubators have successfully graduated over 87% of their firms and kept an astounding 84% of these thriving businesses within their local communities for years after graduation (The National Business Incubation Association). The culinary business incubator, often referred to as a “shared-use commercial kitchen”, has taken a time-tested successful concept and swapped out office space for kitchens. They have opened to much acclaim, nurtured successful businesses and been embraced by their communities.
