HOW DOES FORT STREET GALLEY WORK?

Fort Street Galley is Detroit’s food hall and restaurant accelerator featuring four unique restaurant concepts. Chefs operate their restaurants rent-free and fee-free for their entire stay with us.  Galley Group collects 30% of the top line revenue and in turn provides all marketing, advertising, equipment maintenance, space upkeep, and utility costs. Galley Group additionally supports the chef-owners in building their brands and encourages their future success in the industry by providing them with the resources to thrive within our walls and beyond.

HOW DO YOU SELECT THE CHEFS?

Through a thorough and rigorous process, we select concepts for our space based on uniqueness, viability, and durability. We take into consideration the extent to which each potential chef-owner has developed their brand concept, business model, and operations as well as their ties to the community and ability to staff their concepts with a strong local team. We look to create a well-rounded dining experience for our guests by selecting concepts that compliment each other and provide different styles and flavors of food to choose from and share with family and friends.

WHAT DOES A CHEF NEED TO BRING “TO THE TABLE”?

Fort Street Galley exists to breakdown barriers in a historically restrictive industry and serve as the launch pad for the next exciting new restaurant concepts in the city. Within our space, talented aspiring chefs and restauranteurs can launch their restaurant concept for a fraction of what it would cost to open a traditional brick and mortar. Chefs have the freedom to hire their own staff, create their own menu, and run their businesses the way they’ve always dreamed.
