As if running his own Irish whiskey company weren't work enough, 2 Gingers mastermind and owner Kieran Folliard has set his sights on a new project. The Digging, a small-scale incubator in northeast Minneapolis, will help give local, artisan food makers not only a home, but also access to a wide array of services to help start and operate their small businesses.
What makes the Digging really unique is that in addition to the commercial work space, the company will also provide a variety of other services, including access to legal counsel, accounting, marketing, and human resources. And while the space is predominately meant to serve as a commercial production facility, the Digging will also have a tasting room where people can visit and sample products made on-site. The room will also double as a space for special events and cooking classes.
