MILWAUKEE — We’ve all heard of the saying, “food is the key to my heart.”
In the Sherman Park neighborhood, a food business is helping entrepreneurs reach their dreams.
When you walk inside UpStart Kitchen, you see top of the line cooking equipment and a food entrepreneurs dream.
Prism Economic Development Corporation (EDC) was founded in 201, by the Parklawn Assembly of God Church with the goal of bringing opportunity to residents of Milwaukee’s Sherman Park neighborhood.
Prism EDC’s first initiative was the development and operation of UpStart Kitchen.
UpStart Kitchen opened in June of 2020, and provides entrepreneurs a place to grow or start their food business without the overhead cost of opening a space of their own.
“Being able to come into a licensed facility and have the space and tools to be able to scale up has been great,” said Tomira White, Owner of Delicious Bites.
