Flint Food Works is a unique venture in Genesee County with the goal of providing a facility for food-based businesses to establish a product, perfect their recipe, and develop a business model that will help them grow. As a culinary business incubator our mission is to help entrepreneurs get off the ground floor and literally take a product from the field to the market. For Flint to continue its progress towards becoming a diverse, exciting and prosperous place to live we need local businesses to thrive and local entrepreneurs to bring their passion to our community. And that is where Flint Food Works comes in. We provide low-cost, low-risk, full-service kitchens for local businesses to grow and establish their operations. We eliminate the need for small businesses to take on debt, purchase expensive equipment, sign a long-term lease, or take many of the other risks that business owners have come to expect as the norm for starting a business. Our mission is to provide culinary entrepreneurs with all the tools necessary to develop and successfully market specialty food products, thereby creating jobs and positively impacting the economic development of Flint and the surrounding area. We encourage the use of local food products and services to continue the growth of the local food movement, integrate local growers and producers into the supply chain of local food manufacturers, and develop profitable food based businesses that will create sustainable employment opportunities.
