For many entrepreneurs, launching a restaurant looks a lot like this.

"We have over 50 clients here. About 30 of them are food trucks. We have bakers, caterers. They all do their full businesses out of this kitchen," said Laura Wilson, co-owner, Citizen Incubator Kitchens.

"Everyone knows Nashville is growing. There's restaurants opening, there's restaurants closing," she said. 

Citizen Incubator Kitchens is a place to bake, cook and perfect -- before launching a food truck or opening a brick and mortar store. In an industry where many start-ups will fail, this helps keep risk relatively low.  

Laura and Grant Wilson own and manage the space on the west side of Nashville. Their operation is growing so fast they're expanding to the east side of town.

"We are opening a second kitchen in east Nashville to help accommodate our 200 clients on a wait list. So that will be at Hunter Station. Citizen Kitchens will be in the basement and will have a marketplace up top," she said.
