Welcome to Tompkins County's Kitchen & Food Business Directories and Startup Guides
One of the biggest challenges faced by startup food entrepreneurs is finding a certified commercial kitchen where they can develop their product and service. Our directory helps new and established food businesses to connect with commercial kitchen owners who can supply the work space they need.
To support the goals of this directory, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County has set up the Food Entrepreneurship Program to help aspiring food entrepreneurs from underresourced communities to acquire the knowledge, skills, financial and social support to launch a food business.
Each section below has a directory and business specific, locally relevant startup guide!
