In Search of a Kitchen
Many local food producers cannot afford their own commercial kitchen space, so it’s common to rent kitchens by-the-hour or to share space with an existing food business. Wake County historically has not allowed shared kitchen spaces, however a recent change to the NC state laws lifted these barriers, allowing food entrepreneurs to more easily manufacture their products in the county.
Local food and beverage producers will gather for In Search of a Kitchen
, a discussion surrounding the changes to shared commercial kitchen laws in Wake County on January 14 at HQ Raleigh. Andre Pierce, director of Wake County’s Environmental Health & Safety Division
, and the director of Piedmont Food and Ag Processing Center
(PFAP) ,will share about the new laws and what food makers should consider when searching for commercial kitchen space.
Response has been overwhelming so space is no longer available, but you can sign up for the Waitlist
to receive materials and hear about future Triangle Food Maker events.
This gathering of Triangle Food Makers “In Search of a Kitchen,” is hosted in partnership with Community Food Lab, HQ Raleigh, Advocates for Health in Action, and RDU Mobile Food Association, and with support from the City of Raleigh.
Triangle Food Makers is a gathering of Raleigh/Durham’s existing food entrepreneurs, those who are thinking about starting a food-related business, and all those who support a strong local food system in the Triangle. We come together in person to share knowledge, to support each other’s projects, and most importantly, to strengthen our sense of cooperation and community.
