Fork Food Lab closure

RE: http://mainestartupsinsider.com/nyc-based-owner-places-fork-food-lab-on-the-chopping-block/

I was only able to break this news yesterday on Instagram due to one of the vendors reaching out to me. I have zero details on the building’s potential for resale, whether it will be just the land or if there is an opportunity for a turnkey transition.

I have been receiving a lot of  supportive messages and inquiries. I am optimistic that the facility can be saved by its existing members or a similar concept can replace it. I did not know how else to relay information to Fork tenants of folks offering their services or advice. Please feel free to use the comments section to network!!!
