Creating spaces for food entrepreneurs to work, explore and grow

Chakula254: A Culinary Incubator in Nairobi, Kenya

Nairobi, Kenya – June 10, 2015Chakula! That’s Swahili for food. Food based businesses are one of the most popular businesses in Nairobi, Kenya. Though it may seem everyone sells food, it is incredibly hard for food businesses to grow. Anyone who wants to set up a professional food business has to get through the bureaucratic red tape and will incur huge start-up costs. This is out of reach for the average Kenyan. So, here is the solution — Chakula254, a food incubator that will eliminate the need for high start-up costs and help foodies realize their dreams. It’ll be a safe, dynamic and well equipped space where food entrepreneurs can thrive.

However, to help these people realize their dreams; this culinary incubator needs to grow.  They need a boost. So, they started an IndieGoGo, with the goal of $5,324 by July 4, 2015. The funds raised during this campaign will cover expenses beyond operation and setup costs. First, the majority will go toward equipment acquisition, the creation of training packets, licenses and completing payments for the proposed space which has already been acquired in Parklands, Nairobi. The rest will go to one year business incubation for six low income businesses.  This business is set up on the model of social entrepreneurship, and supporting it will help many other businesses.

To help create spaces for food entrepreneurs to work, explore, and grow, please visit the IndieGoGo campaign or join the conversation on Social media. Backers can choose from many attractive rewards as a “thank you” for their donations.

Chakula254 is committed to honoring the support all backers give them, and will continue with its goal to begin in August 2015, and launch in September 2015. So, help Chakula254 raise any financial support possible. Remember that any amount given counts. Help spread the word about this culinary incubator by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks.
