It takes a lot of work to start a new business, especially when that business involves food. Licensing, health concerns, finding suppliers, and even finding a kitchen that has the proper equipment to prepare the food are all things that have to figured out by people who want to start their own food businesses.
Joan Nelson is the executive director at the Allen Neighborhood Center. She spoke with the Food Fix about the Center’s Incubator Kitchen program that is giving local farmers a place to expand into new areas, and is letting small businesses get off the ground.
