2022 in Review

We took a quick moment to look back at this past year and it was quite the year for e.terra! We thought we would share a few highlights:

In 18 months of operations, e.terra opened 2 locations and will have 3 by our 2nd anniversary.

e.terra is currently home to approximately 50 businesses.

We have also provided production space for 8 award-winning/Michelin star chefs, provided a temporary home for Resy/Amex Global Destination back of house production, on-camera interviews by PIX11, NBC Today Show, CUNY TV, Jane Maxfield (NBC Today)Priya Krishna (NY Times)large international food brands sponsoring or presenting at NYC based festivals, and restaurant brands doing menu development and staff training pre-opening, and the list goes on!

We have had 6 articles – you can find all segments here – written about e.terra and our members, including articles in Edible Manhattan and stay tuned for more in 2023!

In the first year of operations, e.terra was booked for an estimated 24,000 hours of kitchen time by members!

And last but not least…This past year, we volunteered 9 times with organizations such as Gods Love We Deliver, City Harvest, Encore, Union Settlement and have helped to rescue over 110,000 tons of food, and prepped and packaged thousands of meals.  We are so looking forward to doing even more of the same in 2023!  Any of you who would like to join us in our monthly volunteering, please reach out and we will add you to e.terra’s volunteer team!  The more willing hands we have, the more good we can do together!

We wish all of you Happy Holidays and that 2023 be a prosperous, happy year filled with sunshine! 

Get Set. Grow.
