Lisa Sutton, Founder
Kitchen Local is the result of a life-long dream of what seems to be in the Sutton family genes!
Having been inspired by my mother and father who, upon their retirement, opened and ran a successful seasonal breakfast/lunch restaurant in Amesbury for five years and by my brother who, in his forties, received his culinary degree and launched his own successful catering company in Austin, Texas; I too changed course mid-life to pursue my very own foodie dream.
For years, I have experienced and appreciated the value of shared-use commercial kitchens through my brother, John. And knowing there was a burgeoning food industry here on the North Shore/Merrimack Valley, but a shortage of commercial kitchen workspace to support that industry, I realized the direction I wanted to take.
Kitchen Local is about passion, dreams, hard work, goals and entrepreneurship; not just for me, but for those who are and will become part of the Kitchen Local community. I am exactly where I should be: helping to create and support new experiences and locally produced products that revolve around food.
