    What is The Kitchen Door?

    What is a shared-use kitchen?

    A kitchen community that’s got your back.

    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.

    WHAT IS OUR MISSION?

    Helping food entrepreneurs find a place to cook, so they can focus on their business.

    The team over at The Food Corridor built The Kitchen Door after an influx of food businesses reached out to us looking for a commercial kitchen space to cook in. Utilizing our extensive, curated list of commercial and commissary kitchens out there, The Kitchen Door became the perfect alternative to help food entrepreneurs find professional kitchen space to rent.

    At The Kitchen Door, we are on a mission to help food entrepreneurs succeed by making it easy to find fully-equipped, commercially-licensed kitchens. We know that by partnering with the right kitchen, your business can keep overhead costs down, reduce risk, and increase your chance of success!

    Thinking of getting your own commercial kitchen?

    Building your own commercial kitchen is expensive and time-consuming - especially when you are also trying to get your food business off the ground. Here’s what you’ll NOT have to worry about when you rent from a shared-use, commissary kitchen:

    Extra Costs

    The commissary kitchen you rent from will take care of all the extra bills - electricity, contractors, security, sewage, pest control, building codes, and more - so you don’t have to.

    Acquiring and Maintaining Equipment

    Commissary kitchens have the commercial-grade equipment you need, and it is the kitchen’s responsibility to maintain and repair it - one less thing on your plate.

    Underutilized Space

    When you own or rent your own commercial kitchen space, most of the time it will sit empty. You could rent part of the kitchen out yourself, but who wants to deal with tenants?
