Chelsea Michigan Kitchen Incubator Project

Today began the first in a series of meetings to discuss the possibility of creating a Kitchen Incubator in the Washington Street Education Center. This plan would take advantage of the existing cafeteria kitchen space by repurposing it for local entrepreneurs. As this was an initial brainstorming meeting specific details were not discussed rather a broad range of topics related to the success or failure of this new venture. The discussion was organized yet still very open and conducive for creative thoughts thanks to the presenting team of Victoria Bennett and Krissa Rumsey, of Washtenaw Community College.

Many local citizens were among the crowd including the Mayor Ann Feeney, Chelsea City Manager, John Hanifan, David Bloom of Ann Arbor SPARK, and Marie-Ann Fody owner of Zou Zou’s CafĂ©. The community seems very interested if not outright supportive of the plan for utilizing and reclaiming this space.
