The expansion features an Incubator Kitchen open 24/7 for the development and support of local food-based businesses. There budding entrepreneurs will be connected with our network of farms and sales outlets, giving them access to both the raw materials and the markets necessary for lasting success. 

 

Beyond access to a commercial kitchen, with its equipment, culinary support and a regional food hub across the hall, entrepreneurs will benefit from business mentoring offered through our partnership with the Community Loan Fund of the Capital Region. The Loan Fund will offer classes ranging from business planning to branding, and in addition, give incubator businesses personalized support and access to loans.

 

Together, these services provide the framework for food businesses to produce and sustain products that meet the growing demand in the community.
