Project Description

The adaptive reuse of a former refrigeration warehouse into a community-based food incubator and the third project to use the NTCIC Irvin Henderson Main Street Revitalization Fund.

Once complete, the historic warehouses became a dynamic space for small business incubation focused on the foodservice industry, as well as training operated by SUNY Buffalo State Small Business Development Center (SBDC). The building will house 16 commercial kitchens featuring range hoods, walk-in coolers, and other food production amenities. Thirteen local businesses have already signed up to utilize space provided by the project including an ice cream maker, a chocolatier, a baker, and a small mushroom farm. The space will also include a co-op style restaurant on the first floor, reactivating the former industrial corridor and bringing additional business and development opportunities.
