What is an incubator kitchen?

Whidbey Kitchen will provide an opportunity for a food business to grow and become established. It will be a shared, fully-licensed commercial kitchen space with professional equipment, cold & dry storage, affordable rental rates, and additional business development services.

 An incubator kitchen allows you to launch your business with less risk and lower start-up costs. Makers of jams, sauces, baked goods, dry goods, and catered meals will be able to benefit from Whidbey Kitchen. Farmers needing to process fresh produce or contemplating value added food production will find what they need in this facility. 

As an incubator, we will also offer classes and technical assistance from food business experts for new food entrepreneurs. Goosefoot and Whidbey Kitchen will provide "how-to" workshops covering food licensing requirements, product development and marketing, pricing, and more.
