WHY USE A SHARED KITCHEN SPACE?
Updated: Jul 30
What does a shared kitchen space have to offer? Whether you’re transitioning from a restaurant, a private kitchen space, or if you are a first time business owner: What can you expect from Seattle Commissary Kitchen? Here are the top 5 things unique to the Seattle Commissary Kitchen experience.
Reduced Cost: For new businesses looking to explore a new model, you have flexibility. Flex-Schedule memberships begin as low as $500. This is the best way to have access to a commercial kitchen with the most flexibility for your schedule. This is especially important if you are a new business just starting out, or if you are a food business that is gig-based (pop-ups, events or Farmer's Markets fall into this category) and do not need a kitchen every week. As a member you have access to dedicated prep space, shared cooking equipment, Wifi, printer, computers, and all utilities included, whenever you need it.
Expert Support: Our team’s goal is to free you up to do what you are passionate about: Making food! We do the heavy lifting with maintenance of the kitchen (including deep cleaning, equipment maintenance, repairs and sanitation) so this allows you to focus on what really matters to you: Your business! All members enjoy access to our team of kitchen management pros who provide support with equipment, onsite repairs, and regular deep cleaning.
Shared Resources: From business grants, to SBA loans our team is up-to-the minute on what helps Seattle food businesses succeed and we want to share our industry knowledge with you. Our team is here to offer insight as you navigate starting your new business licensing all the way to expanding your business in the future far beyond the our walls.
Community Collaboration: Exchanging ideas, working together on menus for shared clients, developing your business strategy; these are just a few of the ways our community of Foodtreprenuers can be an asset to your business. You are not just gaining access to physical space but also a network of active community members.
Making the Space Your Own: Wondering about storing your privately owned materials or what happens when you hire more staff? By adding dry, cooler, or freezer shelving to your membership you can have all your personal tools and supplies stored directly onsite at your fingertips. Our kitchens grow with you, whether that means additional storage for specialized machinery or adding extra workstations to your membership for increased production as your business grows.
