Starting a food business is hard work. One of the first barriers a food entrepreneur will face is trying to find a commercial place or commissary kitchen to produce food legally. Fortunately, in the last 5 years, there has been significant growth in the number of shared-use kitchens available. Resources like the Shared Kitchen Toolkit and the Network for Incubator and Commissary Kitchens have provided new insights and information to help this model grow and succeed.
A shared-use, commissary kitchen is a commercially-licensed space for chefs, bakers, caterers, food trucks, and other culinary professionals. You typically pay for a membership, or by the hour, in order to rent out cooking space alongside other food entrepreneurs. You also get to share expensive resources like cold storage, equipment, and cleaning supplies.
Here are the Top 5 benefits to using a commissary or shared-use kitchen to make your food business dreams a reality!
