County Seeks Proposals for a Kitchen Incubator

Montgomery County announces RFP for “kitchen incubator” to support Local Food Entrepreneurs.
For the past year, the county has engaged in numerous discussions with local stakeholders and investors about the challenges faced by food entrepreneurs. Recently, Montgomery County’s Food Council wrote to County Executive Ike Leggett advocating for the creation of a kitchen incubator that would help support local entrepreneurs with licensed commercial kitchen space, technical assistance and business training.
In response, the executive has announced a Request for Proposals seeking an expert team to help the county accelerate the commercialization of creations from local food entrepreneurs. The deadline for the proposals is July 31.  A copy of the RFP is available online. For more information, read the press release.
