And the event space, which opens onto a stone-enclosed courtyard, sits adjacent to what is planned to be a 1,500-square-foot commercial-grade kitchen and cooking demonstration area, with four pantries available for rental. The double-wide kitchen and pantries are modeled after a similar cooperatively run space in San Francisco, and are aimed at helping small independent food businesses — the kind often started by women in their own homes — that might otherwise find it difficult to grow, while also adding on-site food options for event planners.
Now, according to a post on the Conexión website, they are hiring for a full-time commercial kitchen manager to run the new space — "a talented, self-starter with commercial kitchen experience to develop the curriculum and training of food entrepreneurs." Sounds like a great opportunity in what I can say is an amazing new space. More info here; full job description here (PDF).
