New Commissary Kitchens for Rent

Coming in 2025: Production Kitchens for Food Entrepreneurs in Providence, RI

The Future of Food is HERE!

Want to start a food business?
Hope & Main is a full-service culinary incubator for food start ups with commissary kitchens for rent. Adding to our original location in Warren, we’ll be opening a new shared kitchen space in the West End of Providence.

Hope & Main has launched 450 food businesses since opening our doors in
2014. Our mission is to create an inclusive environment for startups from all walks of life; in fact, 60% are women-owned and 40% are owned by founders of color. You can champion our expansion to Providence to meet increased demand for our innovative food business incubation program.

Together we can empower Rhode Island’s rising food-prenuers, foster economic mobility, and build a more vibrant and equitable food economy.

West End Kitchens Providence

Hope & Main opened in 2014 and since then, more than 450 food businesses have started or grown  with us in Warren, including producers, caterers, food trucks, and more.

We’re for a more just, diverse, and inclusive food system in RI by creating opportunities for those with social and economic challenges. If you’ve ever dreamed of starting your own food business, we can help.

Over half of our member food businesses live in Providence and the demand for shared kitchen space in the capital city is growing. Hope & Main is ready to meet the demand in 2025.
