Mission Kitchen was born two years ago, after we tried to set up a small food business, and experienced all the obstacles food start-ups face. We saw how hard it was for early stage food businesses to get their hands on the kitchen space, equipment, certifications and support they badly needed. But it seemed like there was a simple solution.
We are a team of true food lovers, who have previously created shared workspaces for creative people working in a number of other industries. So we've seen how bringing entrepreneurs together to share space and resources can make amazing things happen.
WHY LONDON NEEDS MISSION KITCHEN:
More people than ever are turning a passion for food into new businesses:
Food start-ups emerge into the UK market each year.
Year on year growth in registered street food businesses.
More food businesses now apply for Start-up Loans than any other sector.
BUT FOOD FOUNDERS STRUGGLE TO FIND THE SPACE, EQuIPMENT AND SUPPORT THEY NEED TO GROW.
SO SUCCESS RATES REMAIN LOW:
Food start-ups fail in their first 3 years.
Fail in the first 5 years.
New restaurants fail in their first year.
THAT's WHY WE're ON A MISSION...
We are a team of food lovers, and the people behind some of London’s most exciting workspaces, events businesses and food destinations.
