Athens Campus

The Athens Business Incubation Center

ACEnet's Athens Business Incubation Center includes approximately 30k sf which is divided among three buildings.  These buildings typically maintain an occupancy rate of approximately 90-95%. 

Building A, the first building purchased by ACEnet, currently primarily houses service and wellness businesses. 

Building B, the smallest, was built in the 90's and is the location of ACEnet's Administrative Offices as well as wellness businesses. 

Building C is divided into two distinct sections.  The front portion includes offices, a conference room, copying room, and front retail space.  Several food businesses have their main offices located in this area.  In addition, Crumbs Bakery recently opened a retail bakery shop in the front retail area.  The larger back section of Building C houses ACEnet's well known Food Ventures Center which includes manufacturing and commercial kitchen space.
