Phase Two Product Market Fit
Phase Two starts when you are in market and on shelves in Union Kitchen Stores. Product Market Fit is all about learning through our ecosystem! It's learning what customers want and how to deliver that consistently, every time. It's building a team to achieve your mission through your core values.
Our Manufacturing Infrastructure
We’ve poured our resources into building an incredibly dynamic manufacturing infrastructure - Kitchen, Distribution, and Stores - designed to allow brands to achieve product market fit faster.
What is our Manufacturing Infrastructure?
Our manufacturing infrastructure is our Stores, Distribution, and Kitchen. We have invested to build a system that quickly provides feedback, both anecdotal and sales data, and drives early revenue to build companies faster and better prepare for growth.
Why focus on Product Market Fit?
Businesses that have achieved product market fit are worth scaling. They are businesses that have proven that they are solving a real customer need and have the market interest to make a large impact.
