Culinary Business Incubator Breaks Ground in Warren
Published on July 26, 2013
Hope & Main, a kitchen incubator project, will break ground today on a $3.2 million renovation of the former Main Street School building in Warren transforming the site into Rhode Island's first full-service culinary business incubator.
Largely funded by a USDA Rural Development Community Facilities Loan, this project will transform the former Main Street School into a modern kitchen incubator fully equipped with code-compliant, shared-use commercial kitchens, cold and dry storage, technical assistance and other resources to jump-start early stage food businesses and help aspiring food entrepreneurs to realize their dreams.
A true public/private partnership, Hope & Main, LLC, in cooperation with the Town of Warren, aims to create job opportunities and drive economic development throughout Rhode Island based on the region's thriving food culture.
