Binghampton Kaleidoscope Kitchen

Kaleidoscope Kitchen recently launched in the Binghampton neighborhood of Memphis. It is intended to help minority entrepreneurs start companies that have something to do with food.  The Binghampton Development Corporation was instrumental in the development of the Kitchen.

Kaleidoscope Kitchen contains a commercial kitchen that people can rent at prices below the market rate.  It also features a training program focused on culinary fundamentals and the basics of running a business.  The entrepreneur training program starts in early 2018.

The kitchen space can be rented and is located at 280 Tillman St. in Memphis.  Prices are $12 per hour for people living in Binghampton and $15 per hour for people living outside the Binghampton neighborhood.
