Our current economic development projects are focused on the eight towns in western Franklin County (a.k.a. “West County”) and based on the findings of our October 2017 Western Franklin County Business Report. We will post information about these projects here as they are launched in the next few months.
West County needs a large, flexible space for innovation; gatherings of business people; and new tools for production, marketing, and distribution. Rather than be tied down to a single concept, West County needs a space that can change with the times and meet future needs.
Through this pilot program, we are matching local small-batch food producers with space in existing commercial kitchens around the eight towns of western Franklin County.
