One Eleven Food Hall project is an idea born to bring south side food business into a larger market and harness the resources of a single shared space. This project is designed to be a bridge for entrepreneurs wanting to open their restaurants or start a larger scale food business without the burden of huge overhead expenses. Here they will test their products and work out their systems all while being provided business development support. Our goal is to get them ready for their own four wall brick and mortar with all the tools necessary for success.
We’ve curated a select few southside food producers that we know you are going to love. Designed to provide the food hall customers with unique and wide variety of options to keep you coming back and supporting these hard working entreprenuers. These chefs and business owners have been working diligently to grow their business and bring their products to the market. Each of the food vendors bring something that we know you want to come back for again and again.
