What would a kitchen incubator look like in MoCo?

On regular basis I’m asked about the availability of shared kitchen space in Montgomery County. Sometimes it’s a non-profit working on food security and access issues. Sometimes it’s an individual trying to make a hard to find ethnic food product. Sometimes it’s a food truck owner. My answer is typically the same: depending on your needs it’s very hard to find. So for the past several months some of the Innovation Fellows have been researching this issue and looking at various models from around the county. Last week an interesting study came out that provides a clear overview of kitchen incubators around the country. Maryland seems a bit underrepresented. The Innovation Program would be interested in hearing your thoughts. The study is available by clicking here.
