    Akron Food Works (AFW) is a shared-use kitchen and incubator devoted to removing the barriers undermining local food entrepreneurs’ ability to actualize successful small businesses. Our primary objective is fundamental - buildout a certified kitchen facility where local entrepreneurs, small catering operations, and culinary instructors can prepare, process and demo food products for the consumer market. Architectural plans and construction estimates have already been generated to renovate a 1,400 square foot kitchen, complete with baking, cooking and food prep stations, cold and dry storage facility. The AFW facility will provide users access to a certified commercial kitchen without the high startup costs required to build their own. AFW second objective is to create innovation and incubation programming for potential food entrepreneurs and established small businesses.
