Who We Are

We are a “Kitchen Incubator” that offers food service startups an opportunity to learn and practice the essentials of a foodservice business. Our educational courses help deliver, refine, and define an actionable business plan, which in turns lower market barriers and risks associated with the foodservice industry.

Our Story

In late 2016 the groundwork to create a new and unique program commenced. Dream Kitchen Edu will serve as an all-encompassing foodservice business incubator for future entrepreneurs interested in starting a restaurant, food truck, catering business or food manufacturing operation.

Our Founders

Kevin Echevarria, who heads up the Dream Kitchen, joined forces with Sybil Ege, formerly with the ECC Small Business Development Center, and John Richards, a 25 year veteran in the Consumer Packaging Group (CPG) food industry, to create this pathway for those with an entrepreneurial vision.
