An Overview of the Commercial Kitchen Program
The overarching program goal is to provide interested entrepreneurs with an affordable, quality work environment to support their business start-up or expansion and at the same time provide commercial kitchen owners with facility income that it would otherwise not receive.
We understand that the kitchen is the command center for these businesses and having an adequate amount of space is of utmost importance. We want to assist culinary professionals to realize their dream, while eliminating the need for small businesses to take on the debt of purchasing expensive equipment or signing a long-term lease.
These kitchens are fully licensed and up to health code standards and can be rented out on a flexible basis, (i.e., hourly, weekly, or monthly) With these parameters set in place, these new entrepreneurs can focus on building a sustainable and profitable business.
BEDC’s intention is to play a project management role to ensure that all party’s expectations are met on an ongoing basis. This program brings together specialized assistance, targeted resources, and meaningful data collection to one program.
If you are interested in being a part of this program, as either a kitchen owner or potential tenant, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to working with you!
