Food Business Incubator

The City of Watauga, Texas and the Watauga Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) intend to develop the Watauga Food Business Incubator consisting of 1) an outdoor site for culinary entrepreneurs to start up their businesses in a mobile food vendor format; and 2) an education and training program to prepare entrepreneurs to successfully run food service businesses.

The site will be located at 6200 Watauga Road in the City of Watauga and consist of six pad sites, a shared indoor kitchen / food prep area, parking space, restrooms, electrical service, water and sewer service, promotional signage, and a stage area. Tenants will be required to participate in tailored training programs provided by the City of Watauga, the Northeast Tarrant Chamber, and other partners, covering such topics as local government and regulations, business development, and business financials, and tenants will also benefit from City-provided assistance with obtaining loans and addressing legal and other technical matters.
