Kitchen Incubator

Location: La Cocina, San Francisco, California
Featuring: Christina, Azalina, Veronica and Alicia, La Cocina Entrepreneurs

Kitchen incubators help entrepreneurs launch, grow, and formalize food businesses, which provide real asset generation for their families. La Cocina (“the kitchen” in Spanish) provides affordable commercial kitchen space and technical assistance to low-income and immigrant women entrepreneurs growing their own food business.

La Cocina supplies space from which to launch dreams, as well as a vibrant community of fellow entrepreneurs. They believe everyone has the talent and capacity to build a successful food business. La Cocina is located in San Francisco’s Mission District, an ethnically diverse and economically vulnerable neighborhood. Food lies at the heart of this community, and you don’t have to look far to find hidden entrepreneurs in kitchens at many homes.

“El perfecto sabor es cocinar con amor” – The motto of La Cocina
