UpStart Kitchen opens in 7th District


By - Sep 17th, 2020 08:22 am

Alderman Khalif J. Rainey is pleased to announce the opening of a new 7th District project of Prism EDC, UpStart Kitchen. UpStart Kitchen is located at 4323 W. Fond du Lac Ave. and is an incubator for entrepreneurs who want to grow or start their own-food-oriented business. The kitchen offers affordable, state-of-the-art, commercial kitchen space, including a large walk-in freezer and cooler for food storage, but also provides supportive services, training, mentoring, and community connections to help those businesses succeed.

“The opening of the new UpStart Kitchen is an extremely critical addition for the residents of our community because it offers both an excellent place to purchase meals while also supporting their fellow members of the community by shopping at local small businesses,” Alderman Rainey said. “The potential this project has to grow local businesses in our community is unlike anything we have seen thus far, and I am beyond excited to welcome the new vendors at UpStart Kitchen and the partners at Prism EDC to the 7th District.”

Prism is a 501C3 tax-exempt corporation that exists to provide the Sherman Park Community access to resources that result in sustained economic growth and success. For more information visit
