Who We Are

At CommonWealth Kitchen, we believe in the power of inclusive entrepreneurship to change the worldThe business leaders that make up our network—predominantly BIPOC and women-owned enterprises—bring the passion, talent, and love for their craft. We provide some of the supports they have not traditionally had access to, like our shared kitchen and manufacturing space, specialized equipment, best practices, and valuable connections. We are coaches, mentors, and advocates for those whose power has been unrecognized. Since 2009, we’ve helped to launch more than 150 diverse food businesses, creating over 500 new permanent jobs, and generating over $65 million annually in combined gross revenue.
