The Well was built by and backed by nonprofit foundations within The Philanthropy Collective, to which profits made at The Well will continue to be distributed. The Well’s mission is to help up-and-coming restaurants establish a following in our area.

The Well will also be host to a new Culinary Hospitality Creative Workforce Program, launched by the Community Cultural Collective at the Colorado Springs City Auditorium.

The program will be known as ‘Shovel Ready,’ which will be led by several of Colorado Springs’ “most prolific and dedicated restauranteurs.” The ‘earn and learn’ program will give students first-hand experience in the culinary industry, and the opportunity to work on-site at The Well.
