KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A shared kitchen community in Knoxville is hosting its first pop-up event to help entrepreneurs show off their culinary skills and grow their businesses.
They said around 26 vendors participated in the pop-up event. It started at 5:30 p.m. on Friday and lasted until 8 p.m. Among the businesses were cooks who make waffles, bread, granola and other treats. Real Good Kitchen said that the event will help people support local food businesses and give people a chance to try something new.
The organization provides a shared commercial kitchen where members can cook meals and grow their business if they can't afford their own brick-and-mortar store. Their goal is to provide food entrepreneurs with resources and support, and they also provide business guidance and mentorship.
Members have secure access to the facility 24 hours per day, and workstations can be leased by the hour and by the month. There are also dry, cold and frozen storage spaces to lease by the month.
