“Now they have someone who’s backing them, giving them the opportunity to grow from their house into their own business.”

Community Neighbor & Business owner

Formerly the Bedford Tavern, this abandoned building is being turned into a kitchen space for local businesses that need a professional kitchen. The second floor of the building will be a positive space for local entrepreneurs to use to come together, connect, create, and grow their businesses. Bedford Collab is an excellent example of resident-led transformation that is happening through the Tepe Park neighborhood revitalization initiative.  Community One supports this initiative and Tepe Park neighbors as lead agency.

“For the community, it means space for entrepreneurs who have not been able to go the traditional route in getting their business off the ground. The Bedford Collab just removes all those obstacles. Now they have someone who’s backing them, giving them the opportunity to grow from their house into their own business.” – Community Neighbor & Business Owner.
