More than just a bakery.
Hot Bread Kitchen based in New York is more than just a bakery. HBK is a social enterprise bakery supporting low-income, immigrant and minority entrepreneurs through on-the-job training & business development. HBK increases economic security for foreign-born and low-income women and men by opening access to the billion dollar specialty food industry. They do this through their culinary workforce and business incubation programs, Project Launch and HBK Incubates.
To help offset the cost of its training and to build esteem in the contribution of immigrants, HBK sell delicious multi-ethnic breads that are inspired by its bakers and the many countries that they come from. HBK make it a priority to use local and organic ingredients.
As HBK’s staff of trainees grows, so does its product line. As part of its mission, HBK preserve valuable baking and culinary traditions and “br-educate” New Yorkers about the tasty and important contributions of immigrant communities.
