What We Do
At ACEnet, we work with a lot of small food businesses. We assist them with business planning, marketing, regional brand access, financial management, and manage a shared-use kitchen, the Food Ventures Center. Our Food Ventures Center houses our Central Kitchen, Thermal Processing Room, and Warehouse. Around 65 food entrepreneurs are in our shared-use kitchen every year. Access to a shared-use, licensed, commercial kitchen reduces barriers for start-ups allowing entrepreneurs to develop products and businesses without high overhead cost of purchasing facilities, equipment, and necessary licensing.
How You Can Help
To give our small food businesses the best chance to succeed, we need to be able to give them the best equipment to use.
For every $100 invested in ACEnet, there is a return of over $800 in direct sales supporting the businesses that consider ACEnet a partner in their work. Any donation will help us reach our goal, and you can feel good knowing you’ve helped support some of your favorite local businesses like Crumbs Bakery, Casa Nueva & many more.
