Incubator Kitchen Summary


The Hummingbird Incubator Kitchen at the Stellaria Building is designed to support small scale food producers to offer a product to the marketplace without investing in the required commercial kitchen setting at start-up or as they are in the initial stages of growth. The focus for Hummingbird’s Incubator Kitchen is on food businesses that emphasize local, organic and nutritionally valuable Gluten Free (GF) foods.



The Kitchen offers a 6-burner natural gas range with double standard ovens and 24-inch grill, a pair of natural gas convection ovens, reach-in cooler, a vegetable wash sink, dish sink with sanitizer, a mixer, and stainless work tables. Other equipment is provided by the user.



Kitchen cost is based on the percentage of hours used by the tenant and starts at $200 per month which includes all utilities. Additional warehouse storage space, walk-in cooler and/or freezer space may also be available for rent provided we have availability. A refundable deposit of $150.00 and a one-time application fee of $50 is required for each tenant when a user lease is signed. The process of evaluation is free.
