The Pizitz Food Hall has an exciting new tenant. Chef and owner Kimberly McNair Brock has officially opened the doors to Bitty’s Living Kitchen in our restaurant accelerator, REVeal Kitchen. Over the next few months, Kim will serve her healthy “living food” creations as she works toward opening a brick and mortar location in Birmingham. Be sure to support Kim (a part of the CO.STARTERS entrepreneurial family) and our many other small business owners as they continue to help build Birmingham’s vibrancy and its culinary reputation. If you think your business idea is a good fit for REVeal Kitchen, be sure to enroll in Create Birmingham’s next CO.STARTERS class, which kicks off September 11, 2017. Read below for more info.
Special thanks and recognition to our many financial sponsors and in-kind friends who rallied behind this project to make it a reality: Regions Bank, Buffalo Rock, Red Diamond, Bayer Properties, Wood Fruitticher, the Ellen & Fred Elsas Fund, the Alice Meriwether Bowsher Fund, Maynard Cooper & Gale, Appleseed Workshop, and BRESCO.
This fall, the REV team is doing some new REV things, with a demonstration project designed to prove and improve downtown Birmingham’s market for more retail.
I believe that Birmingham is still missing something important—something that inspires people to experience downtown on foot, that can tell the story of our city and its cultures.
