Connecting Food Entrepreneurs and Idle Kitchen Spaces
One of the largest hurdles for new food businesses to overcome is limited access to licensed kitchen spaces. Food incubators at Redwood Acres in Eureka and Food Works in Arcata have helped to facilitate kitchen space for many local businesses, but space is limited and may be more than a brand new business needs. Through out our community there are kitchens in community centers, churches, and schools that sit idle more than they are used. That's where we come in.
Using the services created by Food Corridor we are closing the gap between available commercial kitchen space and businesses that could use that space to grow. Kitchen Connect pairs food businesses with idle commercial kitchens to create a mutually beneficial partnership. The businesses gain a safe and legal space to grow their business and the community kitchens gain an additional revenue stream. We think it's a win-win!
