Located in the Sun King Brewery building at The Yard at Fishers District, you’ll find a cohort of chefs piloting new food restaurant concepts close to home. This restaurant accelerator contains three different food stands with built-out kitchens, giving local chefs a chance to test out their food options and restaurant concepts with business coaching and mentorship. Chefs assume a short-term lease to test out their concepts and build a following, that will hopefully help them open their own restaurant - preferably in Fishers


Who are the chefs?

Chefs are able to apply on a rolling basis and are chosen by a handful of community members. Representatives from the City of Fishers, Launch Fishers, the Test Kitchen and Sun King Brewing are responsible for choosing the chefs for the accelerator. 


This current round of chefs include:

  • Carlos Salazar: Celebrating street food from across the globe, Salazar is tapping into his Filipino roots with his Lil Dumplings menu. 

  • Adam & Alicia Sweet: As the team behind Indianapolis’ King Dough restaurant on the near eastside, their new venture, Natural State is full of southern comfort food options. 

  • Jung Gyu Kim & Jung Min Kim: The two, new to the midwest, are bringing diners the best in spicy & sweet Korean flavors. 



Why should we try it? 

If you’re into supporting local entrepreneurs, new foods, and want to enjoy some eats while enjoying your Sun King beer - this is a no brainer! This is a perfect opportunity to support new restaurateurs as they build up their menus and restaurant concepts.  


You should also book a seat at The Signature Table, also hosted inside of the Fishers Test Kitchen. This u-shaped bar is ideal for those who want a front-row seat in cooking classes and demonstrations. Join area chefs as they offer classes that are perfect for date night, learning a new cuisine, or even cobbling together a meal from your pantry. If you’re looking to find a new way to appreciate the art of cooking, this is a stop you have to make!
