TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A local business hopes to make Tallahassee a more welcoming place for aspiring food entrepreneurs.

Frenchtown's KitchenShare incubator is the region's only food-focused start up program that helps young foodies conceptualize their business plan and then put those plans into action.

The incubator is twelve weeks long, during which, participants learn essential skills that really make a huge difference.

"They have speakers that come in that talk to you about different aspects, they've had a marketing professional come in, someone who's owned a food truck before come in, so that really connects us like never before, being able to have someone come in and talk to you one-on-one about their experience with this and how they can help you and what skills you need," said Janel Robinson.  

The hope is that by the end of the incubator, participants will be able to walk away with a food-based business venture that they can be proud of.

Small businesses will also be able to rent out the kitchen in coming months. The KitchenShare is also hosting a Community Preview Day on June 16.
