See the Space


KitchenShare space is available either on a private or a shared basis.

KitchenShare is considered both a Commercial Kitchen by definition as well as a Kitchen Incubator. KitchenShare offers private space that is used by one of its clients at a time. Such space varies in size from a few hundred square feet to over 1,000 square feet and varies in the amount of equipment. KitchenShare offers a shared space that consists of several food preparation tables surrounded by a wide range of equipment. More than one client works within the space.

KitchenShare allows its clients to receive on-site private deliveries. It is the responsibility, however, of the client to procure and secure the deliveries. Kitchen Share rent also provides a process for its clients to ensure responsibility and liability.
