Discover the six-service Kokotte menu
1. The aperitif: your Kokotte application
You’ll receive an application file to complete, in which you’ll present your project, your teams, your motivations and your organisation.
2. The amuse-bouche: pass the selection jury
You’ll meet a jury of experts which will examine your file based on a number of criteria: your business plan, the sustainable and local aspects of your project, human resources, etc.
3. The appetizer: pass the Kokotte cooking test
If you convince the jury, you’ll cook two appetizers and two main courses from your menu for our partner Horeca Be Pro, which will evaluate your skills against the requirements of the restaurant industry.
4. The main course: expert coaching
Experts in restaurants, marketing, public relations, the circular economy and retail design will provide you with advice and technical solutions before during and after your time with the incubator.
5. The dessert: bring your pots and pans to the incubator
For €800 a month in rent, we’ll provide you with the keys to Kokotte, which includes a professional Diamond kitchen and a modular room layout that will adapt to your concept. You’ll professionalise and maximise your chances of success for four months.
