In the past year, we’ve helped 14 local businesses in Pittsburgh and upstate New York successfully raise the funds they need to grow their business. Today, we’re announcing that Honeycomb Credit is expanding to Ohio!

We recently launched our first Cleveland-based campaign for Pope’s Kitchen, an artisan sauce & cocktail mix business. Central to our expansion is our partnership with The Central Kitchen (formerly known as The Cleveland Culinary Launch Kitchen), the third largest food incubator in the country.

“As Ohio's largest shared use kitchen incubator, we know a large number of businesses who have well-loved products but still have trouble getting access to capital at reasonable rates,” says Eric Diamond, COO of The Central Kitchen, “Our partnership with Honeycomb will help us to achieve our goal of increasing the success rate of local food businesses in Northeastern Ohio.”

We look forward to the opportunity to support the hundreds of thousands Main Street businesses in the Buckeye State access the fair capital that they deserve.
