Commercial Kitchens for Rent

Looking to rent a commercial kitchen? You've come to the right place. We know from experience that starting a food business can be a real challenge. You can't manufacture or prepare food for sale out of your home, but setting up a licensed commercial kitchen is very costly and involved. The solution is to rent/share someone else's certified kitchen. Commercial kitchen rentals, commissary kitchen rentals, and co-op commercial kitchens (kitchen co-op) offer a benefit to kitch space seekers and property owners alike. Use our search feature to locate commercial kitchens for rent within a radius of your zip code or click on your State from the list below to get started. Listings also include local small food business incubators for food entrepreneurs (often run by universities) and mobile kitchen rentals/food booths.
Have a licensed commercial kitchen with space to spare? Why not rent it out and maximize your investment in space and equipment. Commercial kitchen rental is a win-win on both sides. Chances are, there are many aspiring chefs and entrepeneurs in your area who would love to rent your excess kitchen space and equipment by the hour and are willing to work around your kitchen schedule for a chance to get their business off the ground. Post your licensed commercial kitchen for rent for free.
We are also developing a contract food packager directory (food co-packer/"co packer" directory) which will be a comprehensive listing of contract food manufacturers and contract food packagers that specialize in helping with large-scale production and getting your food product into stores.
