We focus on helping small food companies navigate the path from startup to business viability.
We provide fully equipped industrial kitchens for rental on a membership basis—think of us as a gym membership for food businesses, but with a personal trainer and tons of extra support!
CommonWealth Kitchen offers fully equipped industrial kitchen facilities for early-stage food companies to launch your business; outsourced manufacturing to help you scale, and business education and training programming to support you along your journey.
All new businesses joining the kitchen can enroll in our 14 week Ready to Launch program to get the specific training you need to get your business up and running. After Ready to Launch is completed and businesses have been permitted, members receive additional support to grow, such as production improvements, pitching, finding new distribution channels, hiring staff, and more.
This model is ideal for food start-ups, enabling entrepreneurs to launch a business without having to invest thousands of dollars in upfront costs to build out a kitchen and scalable as their business grows!
