Bailey Foster compares Real Good Kitchen and Mountain Harvest Kitchen

We have posted several articles about Mountain Harvest Kitchen in Unicoi, TN – that’s near Johnson City. The latest is this one from an interview with Lee Manning, Director for the past three years.

We asked Bailey Foster, Founder of Real Good Kitchen, to share her thoughts on the Unicoi County project and what she hopes to achieve in East Knoxville.

“I think our visions are very similar,” Foster said. “Our business models differ – Mountain Harvest is essentially a program of the town of Unicoi – but the bottom line is the same. We want to help food businesses start and grow – with the facility and resources they need to do that. Job creation and economic impact are important metrics to measure the success of shared and incubator kitchen spaces. It’s clear that Mountain Harvest is working with a diverse group of businesses and business owners, and we intend to do the same.”
