Local organization breaks ground on Louisville's first food incubator

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- People looking to jumpstart a food business now have a place to turn in West Louisville.

On Monday, Community Ventures broke ground on Louisville's first food incubator. It will be called Chef Space and is located in the Russell neighborhood.

Chef Space will occupy the former Jay's Cafeteria. It will provide commercial kitchen space for up to 50 food businesses in the early stages.

"Now we have the opportunity to be in a wonderful part of town, grow this area, bring more local foods in, bring more entrepreneurs together in one space and maybe be an inspiration and an encouragement for other entrepreneurs like ourselves," said Paula Hunter, co-owner of the Black Italian.

Chef Space will also have a retail outlet and meeting spaces that will be open to the community. It's expected to open in late October.
