The Chef’s Workshop is a Maker Space dedicated to assisting local food entrepreneurs launch or grow their food businesses. We do this by offering access to 4 Fully Licensed Commercial Kitchens that are rentable by the hour, helping to eliminate the financial barriers of entry associated with starting a new business. We also have an in-house food consultant who has assisted in the launch of 40+ food businesses as a resource for entrepreneurs who need guidance along the way.

I’m a Food Business Consultant who managed a Kitchen incubator in OH for a number of years as well as a foodie vlogger known as The Local Food Guy. I was hired as Executive Director of The Chef’s Workshop, which is a Kitchen Incubator being built in West Knoxville to assist local food entrepreneurs with the launch or growth of their businesses. As an avid foodie, I immediately fell in love with the city as well as its tremendous local food scene. I look forward to the possibility of being a resource for Knoxville Makers!
