What We Do

We Wrote the Book.

It's true.  When it comes to getting started in the food business in Charlotte,  The City Kitch really is "Where YOU Come To Cook".
We've compiled a dynamic, comprehensive "How-To Guide" for getting your food truck, catering business or other food-centric operation up and running in Mecklenburg County.

We even helped draft the regulations for Shared Use Kitchens at the State level. So...When YOU become a member of The City Kitch, we'll share what we've already learned so you can get going that much easier and faster.
