The Better Alternative

Alt Kitchen, Philadelphia’s come-as-you-are shared kitchen space opened operations in MaKen Studios, joining a hotbed of other makers, small business owners and entrepreneurs, and community-serving businesses. With flexible shared kitchen space for rent, Alt Kitchen is the alternative to high-overhead and long-term leases that often serve as a roadblock for small business growth in the food industry.

The founders, Eben Altmann and Jonathan Fishman, are the team behind the success and longevity of Baltimore’s B-MORE Kitchen, a space they developed and opened in 2016, which has helped grow dozens of successful local food brands and now regionally-known concepts such as HEX Ferments, Papi Cuisine, Well Crafted Kitchen, and Bottoms Up Bagels. In Philadelphia, the founders have enlisted on-site operations manager Brett Healy, who previously oversaw local operations of SNAP Kitchen.

Cohere connected with the founding team to strategize the name, brand, narrative, and content for this new initiative which provides all the space and equipment necessary to grow and scale a food business in Philadelphia. Tapping into our network of food entrepreneurs, and those in need of smart, nimble, and cost-efficient ways to scale, we are thrilled to launch this brand at this time – as the food industry looks for better alternatives to the status quo.
