Kitchen Rental by the Hour

Launch & build your food business
with lowered risk and minimized start-up costs.

Alternatively referred to as a kitchen incubator, cooperative kitchen, commissary kitchen, or test kitchen, Kitchen Chicago provides a fully equipped, commercially licensed shared-use kitchen available for rent by the hour. We've taken the considerable financial risk of opening and operating a commercial kitchen and reduced it to a fixed cost on which to base your business plans. Plus, our hourly rates mean you only pay for what you use, removing the burden of long leases from young businesses. You can start with us, grow with us, and when the time is right, move from our kitchen into your own.

In addition to helping new businesses get off the ground, our affordable kitchen space has also helped established businesses expand. Our customers have used our kitchen for menu planning, training, taste testing, product development, brainstorming, and of course production. Products made or developed in our kitchen can be found in cafes, restaurants, markets and grocers throughout the Chicagoland area.

Our sole business is helping you with yours, and to that end we pride ourselves on being friendly, flexible, and attentive to your needs.
