The project determined the profitability of the commercial kitchen at the Worcester Regional Food Hub using market and financial analyses. The market analysis was developed using the results from research, stakeholder interviews, and a public interest survey in Worcester. This analysis revealed there was a high demand for trained culinary professionals, certifications, business classes, and value-added product services in Worcester County. The financial analysis, derived from the estimated costs and revenue of the kitchen, illustrated that the profitability of a commercial kitchen depends on the number of tenants and frequency of use. Other products of this research include recommended pricing schemes, kitchen requirements, culinary programs, marketing, and expansion strategies.
