Ribbon-cutting held for ‘Commissary Downtown Kitchen Incubator’
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — An impressive investment in Rochester will be used to serve up economic development and new jobs.
Thursday was the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the ‘Commissary Downtown Kitchen Incubator.’
It’s located inside the Sibley Building downtown.
The commissary targets food truck operators, caterers, bakers, virtual restaurants, home-based food businesses and start-up food manufacturers.
"Before now-massive barriers stood in the way of aspiring food entrepreneurs eager to pursue their dreams, eager to grow their businesses," said Sen. Chuck Schumer. "Building a commercial kitchen can cost up to $100,000, so you know Rochester is known as a place where people have great ideas."
The kitchen incubator is now in a position to help with those great ideas.
It will also work with ‘Mercantile on Main’ right next door to provide access to a commercial kitchen to entrepreneurs who don’t have one.
