How three women entrepreneurs are thriving in vibrant Jersey City food scene
via NJBiz – There are more than a quarter-million multicultural residents living in Jersey City.
Thousands more visit the metropolitan area’s bustling restaurant scene each year.
Everyone wants to feed them — and three diverse women entrepreneurs are helping to make that happen.
Djenaba Johnson-Jones, founder and CEO of Hudson Kitchen, runs a culinary incubator out of Jersey City and is preparing to open a commercial kitchen and coworking space for Hudson County and its surrounding areas.
Alessia Aron, co-founder and CEO of Jersey Girls Food Tours, provides unique guided tours of the city’s many restaurants, food vendors and bars.
And Alysis Vasquez, founder of Chilltown Kitchen, a chef collective and pop-up supper club, also co-founded Midnight Market, a monthly indoor food market and dance party at the Harborside Atrium.
Each entrepreneur partners with local businesses and the Jersey City Economic Development Corp. to help launch, grow, showcase and employ various food vendors, restaurants, bars and chefs within Jersey City and the surrounding areas of New Jersey and New York.
