We had the good fortune of connecting with Christian Soler and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Christian, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
As I was preparing to start my own business I had a clear thought in mind, I was to create something meaningful. Not something I thought people “would think” is meaningful, something truly meaningful; something born out of a necessity, a business that would help people achieve something or do something better. I took a lot of time in the research process, evaluating every aspect of the hospitality industry and its needs; moreover where exactly we would have an impact in the process.
What should our readers know about your business?
We are Miami Kitchen Incubator, Miami’s first culinary incubator kitchen with over 6000 square feet of production space, storage, and coworking space Miami Kitchen Incubator is a powerhouse of a shared commercial kitchen.
We offer food start-ups a fully developed platform of support to help them break through the unique food industry barriers and get to the next level.
We are proud to see amazing local food companies grow. The freshness of their ingredients and artisan process makes the food so special.
One of the biggest hardships we faced was opening our doors. After three years of putting together the project and actually finalizing the space, the pandemic hit right as we were opening our doors. That was a scary moment, but gladly everything came together and the incubator actually helped people figure it out.
We are here to help food companies that are serious about their craft grow, we take pride in helping build a community together and build the city we want to live in.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I do this all the time, I love recommending places to eat, I’m such a foodie.
I would say, breakfast Crema first thing in the morning then hang-out at the beach is a must. Collins and 69th for a more relaxed vibe. A good lunch at the Time Out Market on Linclon rd. and finalizing with some cool beach experience with diner at Drunken Dragon with drinks at Bodega Taqueria speakeasy.
The next day a good all breakfast at a walk around Wynwood walls, brewery hopping around finalizing with some great Asian food ad 1-800 Lucky.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My family takes the shoutout! We are a family of five, and everyone has a different perspective but the support is always there. Be it by supporting me or giving me constructive criticism, my family always kept me moving forward from the idea process and brainstorming to the reality it is today.
