I know it's been ages since I've blogged. It's because I've been hard at work on my day job trying to finance and bring to construction Philadelphia's first large-scale food business center. We just broke ground finally on this 13,000 square-foot project in West Philly. Check out the press release here.
Here's the project in a nutshell:
The Center for Culinary Enterprises will be one of the nation’s most comprehensive commercial kitchen centers, designed to be an engine for creating food-related jobs and businesses, and to provide resources to emerging food entrepreneurs in Philadelphia. The CCE is a 13,000+ square-foot project at 310 S. 48th Street, including three state-of-the-art commercial kitchens for rent to culinary entrepreneurs, a youth-run training restaurant, the eKitchen Multimedia Learning Center, and two retail spaces.
