During the planning stages for REVeal Kitchen, it became apparent that nothing quite like it exists in the city right now, and that means the regulatory environment has to change to meet new needs. The City of Birmingham shared that belief. A new concept like REVeal Kitchen required a completely different business license – one that would accommodate the quick and changing nature of the restaurant accelerator. In response to that need, the Mayor’s Office and City Council pushed to adopt a new business license ordinance for not only REVeal Kitchen tenants, but for all applicable restaurant startups. Special thanks to both the Mayor and the City Council for their efforts. Read what many in the media were saying about the move:
