The Cookery Now Accepting Food Entrepreneurs

Two of Durham's hottest communities have been developing in tandem over recent years. So, its no wonder that one of Durham's newest business ventures draws on both the foodie and entrepreneurship communities to serve a sub-culture of, yep, you guessed it... food entrepreneurs.

The Cookery, Durham's first culinary business incubator and for-hire commercial kitchen space, is now accepting membership applications. The Cookery anticipates a high membership demand to emerge from Durham's budding mobile food scene as well as food entrepreneurs who want to launch a new culinary venture or expand upon a home-based business.

The full-service kitchen features four convection ovens, 80 and 30 quart mixers and work tables as well as walk-in and reach-in coolers. Members contract use of the facility on a monthly basis or by the hour where the kitchen is open 24 hours per day and 7 days per week. In Fall 2011, The Cookery will begin hosting seminars and workshops on topics ranging from small business planning and training, promotion, branding and marketing.

The Cookery's overall goal is to lower the risk threshold for new culinary businesses. Since Durham is rife with culinary talent and entrepreneurial spirit, there's no better time for The Cookery to come onto the scene.
