The Ben Franklin Commercial Kitchen's focus on serving start-up businesses, providing support for growth, and collaborating with other food entrepreneur and farmer organizations supports our vision that the Kitchen will grow into an integral piece of the local food business puzzle; not only as an important access point to infrastructure, but as a tool for connecting otherwise separate organizations and people. We encourage collaboration and substantial conversation between tenants, meet with startup food businesses to assist with financial and business planning, and continue checking in with existing entrepreneurs to help them expand their market and reach.

This site at 420 Main Ave is much more than a commercial kitchen rented by the hour, it represents the essential role that a support system and understanding community has in ensuring a new business's success.
