Gauging Need of Incubator Kitchens in NY

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I'm trying to gauge the need for Incubator/Production Kitchens in the Hudson Valley Region of NY. Since there was so much response to the post about the kitchen in Greenwich, CT, I thought I'd ask who in this area might be looking for work space in the Putnam County/Upper Westchester/Lower Dutchess County area.

 

I know of a couple locations that might be suitable for new food producers, caterers, teachers, food photographers to use on a daily basis, but there needs to be some build out and partnership arrangement to make it happen. It might be possible to use some of the these spaces concurrently with others. 

 

From what we've seen in the farmers' markets, everyone is always searching. Maybe there's a possibility of developing a food producers cooperative? I'd love to brainstorm with folks on these boards.

 

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts-

I like the idea of incubator kitchens. If there are people looking for one then ask them about joining up with you to do it or at least commit to joining if you start it.  I'm not in your area so I can't help.  You can talk to the local small business association.  They may have an idea of what is needed and the people who are looking.  

 

This is a food business incubator in California.  They have a relationship with the small business development center.  They also use it as a cafe during different times so you can brainstorm ways of how to fill the space.

 

Hope you get this going.
