Cook Tucson announced today that it has completed the purchase of a property on 1702 N. Stone Ave. in central Tucson. The 3200 square foot building will house a commissary kitchen and culinary business incubator that will offer licensed commercial kitchen space, business services and resources for food makers, caterers and food trucks.
“Tucson is being featured more and more as a foodie city but lacks the infrastructure needed to support new chefs and artisans,” said Corinne Tso, owner and founder of Cook Tucson. “We want to create a launchpad for aspiring food businesses where we can provide not only the space and equipment but also a network and community for new and growing businesses.”
In addition to basic commissary services, the business plans to feature a retail store for the public to purchase food items created onsite and a demonstration kitchen where area chefs can teach cooking classes and host tasting sessions.
Cook Tucson will open for business in its new location this summer. More information can be found at www.cooktucson.com or www.facebook.com/cooktucson.
