We believe that anyone with the spirit and grit to start a food business—or grow an existing one—should have access to affordable state-of-the-art kitchen space, community, and resources.

What we’ve got for you

Standard kitchen stations

Our kitchen spaces are outfitted with best-in-class equipment and start at $20 an hour. Each station can be booked by the hour (or for any amount of time); by itself or in groups. The larger your needs, the more you save.

Private and semi-private kitchens

Need extra elbow room? Private and semi-private kitchen stations are also available in a variety of thoughtfully-designed layouts.


We work with food brands of all sizes to find and connect them with retail partners. In other words: we help get your product from idea to store shelf to customer’s belly.
