Cork Incubator Kitchen is the brain child of Cork County Council, established to support small food business to produce on a larger scale and seek a better route to Market. It is truly an Incubator, providing the space, support and nurture to start-ups and others in order to grow and flourish.
Cork Incubator Kitchens are up and running and opened for business for the past year. Being a state of the art production facility, the primary objective of the incubator kitchens was to encourage small producers, who work from home, to up scale to a commercial kitchen without incurring large capital expenses.
The Incubator Kitchens were launched with great publicity last October and a vigorous marketing campaign ensued.

“Availing of the Cork Incubator Kitchens to shoot some videos for a major food retailer, we found Brendan, the facility manager to be extremely helpful from the start. He made everything from the booking to the payment simple, quick and easy. He was very flexible which is hugely appreciated when it comes to video shoots. The kitchens and facilities are brilliant, they have all you could need and are extremely clean. We will definitely use the kitchens again and couldn't recommend them more highly.”
"CIK is a fantastic facility without which I would not be selling in supermarkets today! The units have everything you need till you build up enough capacity to have your own place. The fact it is food safe too is a big worry off my head."
"Cork Incubator Kitchens are ideal for my demonstrations and classes. The equipment, the space, the accessibility are perfect for what I need"
