Fishers Test Kitchen


One of the top suburban cities in the country, known for their entrepreneurial grit, wanted to kick-start a culinary scene from within their community. Taking a play from their successes in the business and tech industries, they set out to establish a restaurant accelerator; a concept to discover and nurture the next great chefs.

Fishers Test Kitchen
The Story

Ranked  #1 Place to Live in the US by Money Magazine, the City of Fishers had experienced explosive growth in their population. One of the top requests of residents was a desire for a broader array of unique dining experiences. Modeling after their successful launching pad of entrepreneurs in the tech industry, they set out to create a similar platform to help culinary up-and-comers build and launch new restaurant concepts. Engaging DELV to help design a new space for chefs to experiment with their menus, we set out to not only design each chef a functional micro-kitchen, but ultimately help choreograph how the public interfaces with their emerging brands.

Co-locating with a wildly successful brewery, Fishers Test Kitchen takes advantage of the established customer base that will patron Sun King Brewery and offers them food options to pair with their craft beverages. In addition to a walk-up food service, the Test Kitchen will have a ‘Signature Table’ curated for special classes, exhibition cooking events, and other intimate culinary experiences for small groups.

Located at The Yard in Fishers District.
