Last December, the Backs signed a 10-year lease for a commercial kitchen location at the Fair Oaks Pointe shopping center at 8525 Madison Ave., Suite 127.
The approximately 2,400-square-foot facility was expected to open in the spring but has yet to begin operating. Back said permitting delays initially held up the project, but once they were given the go-ahead to begin work, they found structural issues that needed to be corrected.
Back said they are now in full construction mode and have completed the majority of plumbing work and walls. They expect to hang the kitchen hood systems this week. He expects the Fair Oaks Pointe operation to open in November.
Ideal users for the shared kitchen include caterers, bakers and food truck owners who need a place to prep, and sellers at farmers markets or delivery clientele.
