Enjoy the taste of Rhode Island’s iconic restaurants at home!
DishUp RI is an initiative we launched to support our State’s vibrant restaurant community. We are assisting legacy eateries and beloved local restaurants to produce and offer their signature dishes and flavors at local retailers.
Dish up your favorite chef’s signature flavors at home! Products are available directly through each restaurant and at Dave’s Fresh Marketplace starting Friday, May 21, 2021.
From Restaurant to Retail
The DishUp RI grant enables local restaurants to provide consumers with a new way to experience their food and to pivot into new lines of business as the culinary landscape evolves. The “resto-preneurs” (i.e., chefs and owners of local eateries) participating in this initiative have access to an outstanding team of locally-based experts, including our in-house staff, who provide the comprehensive technical and business assistance required to bring a new product to market.
We are assisting with recipe formulation, testing and scaling, packaging and labeling, lean manufacturing, branding and marketing, as well as sales and distribution assistance.
Products are made either in the restaurant or at our Warren-based culinary facility.
Restaurants participating in this initiative get access an outstanding team of locally-based experts that provide technical assistance, in addition to our in-house business incubation team.
Under the guidance of this team, restaurants can create retail products from signature sauces, marinades or spreads, baked goods and even frozen or pre-prepared meals that will be sold in local stores and farmers markets.
