There’s one goal at The Commissary: bring people together through food — to nourish their bodies and souls while also creating opportunities.
“We created The Commissary to be a place that helps food professionals start and grow their businesses, and connects those who love to cook with those who love to eat,” explains The Commissary Owner Kate Djupe.
The Commissary, based in Columbus and attracts participants from across the region, hosts a variety of classes and workshops for those who work in the food industry and also provide a list of services available for food enthusiasts.
For food professionals, there’s commercial kitchen space, a Food Truck Base Camp where you can make The Commissary home base for your food truck, storage space, support services, meeting and class space and private kitchens. Those who just love food can check out The Commissary for a number of services including hands-on learning, team building and private events.
“We offer all sorts of services, spaces, classes and events,” says Djupe. “But one thing is always constant: Everything we do revolves around our commercial kitchen. Nothing happens here that doesn’t involve food being prepare in or shared from what we consider to be the heart of our business.”
And Djupe is absolutely right about that. One of the most popular events at The Commissary is Makers’ Breakfast, a monthly gathering of entrepreneurs. “This is our monthly gathering of entrepreneurs, both new and established, to share a meal, our experiences and support for each other,” explains Djupe. “Maybe we will even create the solutions for some of our most pressing issues.”
The next meetup at The Commissary will be held Tuesday, Dec. 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. While there’s no cost to attend a Makers’ Breakfast, to confirm your spot you’ll need to RSVP no later than Nov. 28.
Breakfast for the event will be provided by The Proof Box.
Other upcoming Makers’ Breakfasts will be held Jan. 5, Feb. 2, March 1 and April 1.
