Launching a food-based business can be challenging, a process containing many regulations and ample start-up costs. At the Catapult Kitchen, our goal is to make this process easier and reduce barriers to entry for companies in the culinary world.

We have a monthly minimum of 10 hours.

Our kitchen space is limited, so we use an interview process to vet potential members. Please reach out to Maggie for more information.
