Community Kitchen at MCC Opened



The Community Kitchen at Mayland Community College is an approximately 1,000 square foot shared-use kitchen that has been outfitted to meet the needs of local entrepreneurs, business owners, and individuals who are looking to start a new food business, grow their existing business, or use larger scale production facilities. Combined with the Small Business Center we also have classes to help with marketing, development, and financial aspects of owning a small business. Funding for the Community Kitchen is provided by grants from The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina and The North Carolina Tobacco Trust Fund Commission.
