Spice Bridge will be home to FIN’s Food Business Incubator program, which supports under-resourced South King County residents, primarily immigrants and refugees. Our pilot program has helped launch 12 businesses, and we now have an opportunity to build off this success and help launch more through this new space!
The 2,800-square-foot facility will include a commercial kitchen with four cook stations, five food retail stalls (including one stall designated for pop-ups and cooking demos), and a community dining area. The space will accommodate 20 food businesses, including eight that will rent stalls in the food hall that will be open to the public for food service. Other businesses will use the kitchen for off-site sales, such as catering and farmers markets. The facility will allow for expansion of FIN’s pilot program, which provides incubation services including subsidized rent at a shared commercial kitchen, permit assistance, market channel development, and other business supports.
To build out the facility, we are raising $975,000 in capital funds. Funds will support designs, construction, and equipment to get the facility up and running. Learn more at foodinnovationnetwork.org/food-hall.
