About La Placita

What’s going on in that big yellow Castle on Fruitvale?
A lot of people ask this question and only those that allow their curiosity to bring them in will discover the number of things going on here. The facility is managed and operated by Rising Sun Entrepreneurs. It is a family owned business that focuses on helping entrepreneurs get their micro business off the ground. We also assist small business entrepreneurs in networking, obtaining small business loans, business licenses and food vendors with local permits.
The facility and the services provided here are open to all residents of Oakland and beyond. We aim to help those with limited resources establish small businesses in a variety of fields, but we have a particular niche in helping entrepreneurs in the food industry. Our Mobile Food Vendor workshops have contributed to the success of hundreds of independent caterers throughout the East Bay Area.
If you are an freelance Bay Area / Oakland caterer and need a place to prepare your savory dishes, La Placita’s shared commercial kitchen is available for a low cost. The commercial kitchen at La Placita is managed by Rising Sun Entrepreneurs. Have a look at the Commercial Kitchen Rental page for details.
