The Kitchen has joined the arts and business area at 227 N. Market St. in Wilmington’s LOMA district.
The business held a grand opening/open house on Friday night that was attended by Gov. Jack Markell, Delaware Economic Development Office Secretary Alan Levin, and other business and community leaders.
The opening was also part of the monthly Art Loop event in the city.
The business specializes in short films for businesses and nonprofit organizations. Clients have included the United Way of Delaware, the Delaware College of Art and Design and the YMCA of Delaware.
Phillips said the location and attractive rental figure allowed the company to move into the new space.
The company that came out of the coIN Loft, a business development and shared space company also based in Wilmington. Coin Loft also moved to new quarters a few blocks away from The Kitchen.
Markell and Levin have been active in promoting the LOMA district and efforts to bring business to the area. In January, they were part of a ribbon cutting at the new location of the coIn Loft and Start It Up Delaware, a business development program that received funding from the state.
Miller says the challenge for The Kitchen is to increase awareness about the capabilities of local production companies in producing high-quality video.
Currently, businesses often turn to companies from outside the area for video work, he said.
