Our Incubator Kitchen grew out of the necessity of our community’s farmers market vendors and value-added food producers who were encountering problems securing commercial kitchen space. They needed a convenient and affordable kitchen that provided them with Health Department Certified space, as well as the services and support that were necessary for their businesses to flourish.

Chiknegg’s Incubator Kitchen offers a mixture of traditional kitchen prep space for food entrepreneurs and classes for consumers, in addition to a cozy setting for chef’s to offer pop-up meals. We have a complete list of equipment, including pictures, on our website: www.Chiknegg.com.

We are open 24/7/365. Our hourly rates range from $22.50-$30 per hour, depending on the number of hours rented per month. We also have dry storage, as well as cold storage available.

We have tenants ranging from those in the very beginning stages of their food business venture, to experienced bakers, caterers, food truck operators, to wholesale value-added food producers.

We especially enjoy assisting those who are in the beginning stages of launching their business, and even offer classes and workshops for food entrepreneurs, as well as ServSafe Food Handler classes and cooking classes. For a complete listing of our classes, visit www.Chiknegg.com.

We will do everything we can to help you hatch your food business!
