This guide seeks to clarify the tools and resources available for food co-ops to efficiently secure and develop the physical space needed for their store. The need to design and build an attractive building in a location that easily serves a growing shopper base and can attract new customers is vital. A co-op’s location is either an advantage or a disadvantage; it is best to work with experienced real estate professionals to ensure the best result.
This guide covers the time frame from concept development through securing the site. It has been collaboratively developed by Food Co-op Initiative, CDS Consulting Co-op, National Co+op Grocers, and NCG Development Co+op.
