Create. Incubate. Elevate.

More than just a kitchen, we exist to support food entrepreneurs as they create, incubate, and elevate their businesses by leveraging our resources, expertise, and community partnerships.

  1. Food Business Incubation

While there are business incubators in Akron focusing on the technology industry: Small Business Development Center, BOUNCE Innovation Hub, and GAINS, there is no business incubator to-date focused on food businesses.


  1. Part-Time Kitchen Space

Part of incubating food businesses is providing certified commercial kitchen space for less than 40 hrs/wk, while the businesses are in their early growing stages.

  1. Connecting local retailers

Reaching customers is the most crucial aspect of a food business (after having a good product). In addition to the network of The Well staff, we will compound our efforts with the consulting experience of CCLK.


  1. access to funding sources

A stumbling block for all new businesses is capital. Through partnerships with ASIA, Inc. Micro-Loan Program, HFLA, Honeycomb Credit as well as private lenders, kitchen users have ready access to a funding source up to $25,000.
