Starting a food business isn't exactly a piece of cake. Beyond designing the best product offering and crafting a business plan for success, food entrepreneurs who are actually working with food (vs. food app companies, for example...) need the equipment, and the space, to experiment, to learn, to grow, and to produce their products.
The Cook's Nook will fill the void between one's own home kitchen and a shared commercial kitchen for those just starting out, provide space and resources for caterers, and food truck operators, and chefs looking to experiment somewhere away from their primary kitchen.
On May 16 The Cook's Nook and members of AFI's Investor Network signed documents to provide up to $214,000 of debt financing for construction of the Cook's Nook space at 205 Thompson Lane in east Austin. The Cook's Nook is projected to open in Fall, 2016.
