Spice Kitchen Incubator is a program of the International Rescue Committee
Spice Kitchen is a food business incubator focused on creating opportunities for refugees and disadvantaged individuals. We help our participants start full- or part-time food businesses by providing technical assistance and training, access to commercial kitchen space, and mentorship. Many of our participants have succeeded in starting local food businesses.
Participants are recruited from the local community, attend an orientation session, and are assessed to determine if they have the entrepreneurial spirit, product viability, and community focus needed to run a successful food business.
During incubation, participants receive technical assistance to establish the foundations of their business plan including product development, marketing, finances, and operations. Our supporters and mentors provide access to capital and resources to help them grow.
Once participants meet all established incubation benchmarks, they are eligible for graduation and move their business out of Spice Kitchen Incubator while still remaining part of the alumni community.
We need you to help our participants succeed! From taste-test focus groups to business mentorship and group activities, we are always looking for dedicated individuals to help us out.
