Toronto – Calling all food entrepreneurs!
A new space, called Kitchen24, is opening in May for budding foodies with ideas for new food products.
The state-of-the-art multi-use culinary space will be open to foodies, chefs, caterers, start-ups, food trucks, gourmands, food stylists, community groups, corporations and nutritionists.
The 28,000-sq.-ft. food incubator will include commercial kitchens, office space (fully equipped with A.V.), a photography studio, lounge and classrooms. It can accommodate up to 100 individuals working at the same time.
Clients of Kitchen24 will have access to multiple kitchens (both commercial grade and licensed kosher) designed for a wide range of culinary needs – covering almost everything from pizza ovens, deep fryers and griddle countertops to blenders, cooling racks and food processors, etc.
Kitchen24 will offer a membership program that provides a working station, designated areas to store supplies (dry, fridge or freezer), access to the space 24/7, use of the lounge that can be converted into an event space, mentoring programs and business support.
The Kitchen24 team will also be able to connect individuals with outside resources such as government agencies, industry professionals, educational programs, mentors and advisors.
