About the Organization:
Bronx CookSpace is a fully equipped commercial kitchen that provides flexible, affordable workspace and individualized technical assistance to small food businesses. We give entrepreneurs a place to test products and ideas as they develop and grow cost-effectively. The 4,000 square foot kitchen is divided into four workspaces, or bays, that can be rented alone or in combination. It is ideal for caterers, bakers, and food and beverage manufacturers who would otherwise not be able to afford the commercial kitchen space or equipment they need to start and grow their business.
Latest Project:
In Spring 2017, Bronx CookSpace participated in the Morgan Stanley Strategy Challenge, an 8-week pro-bono consulting engagement that explored how Bronx CookSpace should price rental fees and technical assistance to balance serving entrepreneurs and improve financial sustainability.
