Pilotworks a Bushwick based startup, which offers commercial kitchen space, mentor programs, and distribution services to food startups, on Saturday has announced that “The company is shutting down its business due to the lack of necessary capital.”
Pilotworks currently has its centers in Brooklyn, Newark, Chicago, Dallas and Providence. Currently it has 175 independent food entrepreneurs in Brooklyn.
The company also issued a brief statement on its website.
It is with a heavy heart that after failing to raise the necessary capital to continue operations, Pilot works will cease operations on October 13th, 2018. We realize the shock of this news and the disruption it causes for the independent food community we were so honored to serve.
This is a sad outcome for Pilotworks, the makers in our kitchens, and independent food in general. We wish there was another option to continue operating. Sadly, there was not. The work the independent food community is doing is amazing and inspiring. We know it will live on, and we are deeply sorry it will not be with Pilotworks.
