How can the commercial kitchen become a Profit Center?
To maximize our profits, we begin by partnering with organizations that have underutilized commercial kitchens. These kitchens can become profit centers in a variety of ways, depending on the needs of the given community we are serving.
As kitchens generate income, finances are reinvested back into the organization, multiplying our ability to reach those with barriers to employment through our Vocational Training Program.
Here are some examples:
Our kitchens can be used to prepare meals to serve on the premises or prepared and packaged for takeout.
Bakery: Baker’s Heart
Our brand, Baker’s Heart, has a variety of fine baked products ready for use as a fundraiser or packaged as gift items for local businesses and for the private sector. Baker’s Heart is a growing brand with many signature items ready to market.
Serving the elderly, children or others in need, our kitchens can be used to prepare pre-ordered, healthy and nutritious meals.
Utilizing our kitchens to provide catering services is also a potential means to generate profits.
Our kitchens can produce items sub-branded under our organization or our Partner’s organization. We have a number of up and coming ‘brands’ on the horizon!
