INCUBATOR PROGRAM

ACCESS, GUIDANCE, INSIGHT and OPPORTUNITY for Start-up Food Businesses.

 

THE SHORT STREET to SUCCESS MISSION

The Short Street to Success Program's mission is to help start-up food businesses grow into sustainable, cash-generating companies. Our program offers culinary entrepreneurs the opportunity to grow for their first 2 to 3 years without the cost of building and equipping their own commercial kitchen.

 

We do this by offering support in recipe and menu development, product marketing and business development and scale-up. Working along side of culinary professionals with established businesses allows program participants to set more realistic goals and perfect their operations. Located at 106 Short Street in Downtown Kernersville, we are committed to creating jobs in the local community, revitalizing this historic space and meeting demand for local food products.
