Greater Cincinnati's culinary scene is ever-expanding, and with the opening of incubator kitchen and event space Oakley Kitchen Food Hall, area chefs and food entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to develop their ideas, skills and products even further.
The food hall will be located at 3715 Madison Road in Oakley, and is slated to open its doors in early 2021.
The establishment will feature a joint-use space: Campfire Foods Commissary will inhabit the first floor, with eight kitchen pods featuring start-ups and ghost kitchens. There will also be a bar and marketplace offering local products from both new and established local businesses.
Upstairs, Oakley Kitchen Food Hall will feature a 10,000 square-foot event space that can be used for food-centric parties, private events and weddings.
"We want our kitchen vendors to graduate to brick-and-mortar locations and our marketplace partners to land wholesale accounts with larger retail outlets," Marketing Director Drew Oxley said.
"We see the Campfire Foods Commissary being a flagship R&D location for new foods to be created and shared with the public. We are excited to create a space where Cincinnati can have a front row seat with new and innovative foods."
Additionally, the space will be the new central catering location for Eli's BBQ.
