After working in marketing and business development at some of the world’s largest media brands, Djenaba Johnson-Jones was clear of one thing when she was laid off: There was an opportunity for a new beginning. Initially, she planned to launch a meal delivery service, but unforeseen hurdles challenged success along the way.
She found herself partnered with a chef but at a loss for a local commercial kitchen and credible information on how to launch a food business. These vacancies ignited a shift that led Djenaba to launch Hudson Kitchen, a food business incubator that boasts 8,000 square feet of production, storage, and co-working space for brands ready to start, sustain and scale their businesses. From networking events and consulting services with industry experts to access to major retail outlets and professional development courses, like the popular Food Business Bootcamp, Hudson Kitchen is taking the food entrepreneurs you will know tomorrow and giving them the tools, they need today.
