Kokotte: the call for applications for our pop-up restaurant is open!
Opening a restaurant is a great adventure, but it can also be a risky one. That’s why hub.brussels, the Brussels Business Support Agency, has decided to launch kokotte, our first culinary incubator, dedicated to restaurant sector entrepreneurs.
Finding the right location, complying with administrative requirements, covering numerous costs, managing staff and dealing with the pace of work and irregular hours are just some of the challenges that must be overcome when entering the hospitality sector.
Add to this the demands of today’s customers, which have become a key factor that must be taken into account when opening a restaurant: as well as culinary discovery, the public expects original concepts and new experiences.
