S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 7351 I N S E N A T E January 21, 2020 ___________ Introduced by Sen. KAPLAN -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Education AN ACT in relation to requiring the Empire State development corporation in consultation with the state university of New York, the city university of New York and the commission on independent colleges and universities to study the economic impact of optimizing kitchen incu- bators in New York state THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds that in order to improve the economic opportunities for its citizens and entre- preneurs, it must use the established capabilities of its university systems to offer space and resources to the next generation of food manufacturing businesses. It has been documented that the chief obstacle for start-up food manu- facturing businesses is their inability to access affordable commercial kitchen space. Currently all over the state, there are only a few kitch- en incubators facing high demand and unable to meet the needs of the many potential start-up businesses. Kitchen incubators are valuable resources for New York state as it moves to promote more job development, business development and increased tax revenues. In New York City alone, there are more than 900 food firms, with over 16,000 employees and another 2,500 who are self-employed. This has been viewed as evidence of entrepreneurs' intent on developing their food manufacturing ideas into full scale production capabilities and fully functional business entities. Minority and immigrant populations are growing significantly through- out the state and so are their number in entrepreneurship activities, including in the development of foods from their native place of origin and this creates growing demand for such foods by increasing minority and immigrant communities.
