A kitchen incubator is a place where farmers, caterers, gourmet food producers, and others interested in the production of food items have access to a facility to prepare food products at a reduced cost. The facility is rented at an affordable rate and provides a licensed and fully equipped kitchen that will provide the equipment necessary for interested parties to prepare, package, store, and label their products. Further, the facility will provide business services, training (financial, marketing, product development), and mentoring services to give the food entrepreneur every opportunity for success in their venture.
