Entrepreneur – Food Builds Community – Catherine Ferrar

Tell us a little something about your business...

With two businesses on the go and a love for food:  Catherine is one of The Jelly Girls who make jams, jellies and confitures from local sources and she is the host of Our Kitchen Brantford a unique shared commerical kitchen.  We are an affordable commercial kitchen and a culinary incubator designed to give aspiring entrepreneurs a boost in the industry as well as a collaborative space in which to launch their business and learn from each other.

When was your lightbulb moment?

My lightbulb moment came when I realized that Our Kitchen Brantford was much more than a shared commercial kitchen. It is a community of foodies passionate about the love of their unique food offerings. We are a family. We teach. We share our food. We share the love of good food.

What are your three words of advice?

Just Be You. There is no one like you. Your gift to the world is your passion that you are willing to share. Your uniqueness offers a different perspective to others; often something unseen to them. You have the choice,  to hide your light or light up the room with your presence. Which one is more fun ?

Three words of advice...
