Brick and Mortar Test Kitchen

We offer a shared commissary test kitchen which talented food and beverage entrepreneurs can use as a low-barrier opportunity to test out their concepts in a supportive environment. Our restaurant tenants develop their own menus which are presented together to all guests as they try out the culinary creations of multiple chefs in a unique dining experience. Tenants are able to use this time to get creative, grow their brand, and develop their unique style and flavor to create a permanent concept.

Impactful Industry Content

Proof gives updates on recent industry happenings such as the collective push of multiple organizations to sway government into replenishing the Restaurant Revitalization Fund or changes in employee tipping laws. Proof also creates practical step by step materials with information on navigating tasks such as the development of cost-cutting menu strategies to combat rising food costs.

Every session was beneficial to me and my business.

Lil Mama's

It’s given me a great sense of confidence, because now when I’m making decisions for the restaurant, I have an opinion from someone who is experienced and gone through what I am now.
