Southern Indiana Foodpreneurs Will Revitalize Evansville’s Tepe Park Neighborhood
A shared commercial kitchen and garden will help to reduce food insecurity in one of Evansville's underserved neighborhoods.
What Is a Foodpreneur?
The simple definition of a Foodpreneur is, "Someone who starts their own business in the food or culinary industry." For people that are not in the culinary industry, it is a buzzword that grabs our attention. I know that there are so many talented people in Evansville that could be amazing chefs, but starting your own restaurant from scratch is not cheap. Sharing commercial kitchen space with fellow Foodpreneurs is a smart way to perfect recipes and share them with the community.
What Is The Bedford Collab Project?
Even if you don't know the name DeAndre Wilson, you will recognize him when you see him rolling his giant tire through Evansville's neighborhoods. Maybe you've tried some of his food from Turn Table while he was able to use the kitchen space at PG. Soon, he will be cooking in the former Bedford Tavern, now known as the Bedford Project Collab.
The old Bedford Tavern located at the corner of Madison and Bedford in Evansville's Tepe Park area will have commercial shared business space, and DeAndre says, "We can bring out the magic and a lot of potential in chefs." The second-floor space will be available for all kinds of entrepreneurs to use for their craft.
The Bedford Collab Project is all about investing in neighbors.
