This year is hardly halfway over and already WeWork has been busy making leaps and bounds with new and innovative services for local and small businesses around the world.

Just this January, the collaborative workspace provider announced a major rebrand to The We Company, branching out into three new divisions: the office-focused WeWork, the education-centric WeGrow, and the residential WeLive. Along with the announcement is the promise of new residential and education units this year, as well as a rise in acquisitions and new hires.

Shortly afterwards, Curbed reports that they had also debuted their first retail concept, Made by We. The space, which opened in Manhattan earlier this year, showcases goods created by members of the fast-growing WeWork community. And of course, let’s not forget the even more recent revelation that the company is going public with an IPO.

Nine years and 550 global locations since it was founded right here in New York, WeWork now has its eyes set on the food world. Under their “Labs” division, the WeWork Food Labs is set to provide a space for food innovators to come together. On their website, the company has shared their high hopes in fueling the future of food. “We support early-stage innovators across the food ecosystem, including companies making food more sustainable through AI, robotics, kitchen appliances, supply chain, ag tech, distribution software, consumer goods, hospitality, and beyond,” they clarified in a statement.
