Dynamics of Shared Use Commercial Kitchen Business Models in Minnesota

Webinar Wednesday: Dynamics of Shared Use Commercial Kitchen Business Models in Minnesota
In an effort to develop a better understanding of the shared commercial kitchen business model, AURI commissioned a report to discover the dynamics that challenge the viability of commercial kitchen businesses. Working with CLUTCH Performance, in close partnership with Food Works Group (FWG), with funding, in part, by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA), AURI is now pleased to share the results.

Throughout this webinar, attendees will learn about what AURI discovered, as well as hear recommendations that can help strengthen this segment of the food value chain, with the goal of creating a system that better supports scaling food businesses.

Join us for AURI Connects: Webinar Wednesday on February 8, 2023 from 12:00-1:00 pm CT to hear from experts in the field on how shared-use kitchens are established for emerging food business entrepreneurs. Sponsored by Bremer Bank.

AURI Connects: Webinar Wednesday is a monthly webinar series hosted by the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute. Each webinar explores different aspects of the food and ag sectors in Minnesota—from resources for food entrepreneurs to innovations in coproducts and biobased energy.

Webinars take place on the second Wednesday of the month from 12 pm – 1 pm. Registration is free and open to the public. To learn more about upcoming webinars and watch past recordings, visit us at
