Even though Vancouverites can’t head to the Sunshine Coast right now, we’re still excited to hear news of Coho Collective’s new commissary in the region and look forward to seeing it upon completion.
That’s right, the Greater Vancouver-based collective is officially heading to the coast.
This will be the fourth commissary from the company, and an 8,400-sqare-foot space in Lower Gibsons, complete with a concept restaurant, is currently in the works.

No opening date has been released for the 292 Gower Point Road facility, but Coho Gibsons revealed it plans to provide enough space to house about 25 local food and beverage businesses.
“There is so much local talent in the Sunshine Coast, and we are thrilled to provide affordable, community-focused, and well-equipped spaces for passionate food and beverage makers to do what they love and create what they love,” explains Andrew Barnes, CEO of Coho Collective.
“Our commissaries have served as an incubator for so many small businesses that have gone on to great growth. Most of all, many have created long lasting friendships with fellow peers in the industry. Longman Developments is the perfect community-minded partner to help us build Coho Gibsons.”
Coho opened its third 10,000-square-foot commissary kitchen and cafe in Strathcona just last year, along with an online market this past summer.
