Subscribe to The Biznik Community In need of a commercial kitchen to rent - any ideas???

Hi everyone,

I am going to need to rent space in a commercial kitchen one to three times a month for a day at a time to formulate my organic skincare line. Does anyone know of any kitchens that are available? The closer to Bellevue/Issaquah the better.

Thanks!

    On craigslist they appear sometimes under "Housing>office/commercial"--it's sporadic.

    You might drop a line to Tiberio as I know he's shopped around Seattle for such a space and he might have some ideas.

    Dear Shelly, I recently sent you numerous links to kitchens. The Lynnwood Kitchen mentioned she knew of one in Kirkland. I did not get the name of it.

    Best to you Linda

    Hi Linda - thank you for recommending this site. I am currently in the process of building out a commercial kitchen space in Lynnwood that will be available in September. I currently have a kitchen in Bothell, but we are full to the gills thus the need for the larger build out.

    The kitchen I was referring to in Kirkland is run by John Bagge of 12 Baskets catering. Tell him Debra Lane sent you. I believe their catering manager's name is Andrea. However, most kitchens require a minimum number of hours/lease. We will have some space for people who want to rent by the hour in September if you have not found space before then.

    Hi Linda,

    I am afraid I never got your message! I didn't even know you had sent me a list. Would you please re-send it? Thank you very much!

    Hi Shelly,

    If you are still looking, I used to rent a great kitchen in Kirkland. We had a great community there, although this was about 7 or 8 years ago. Call John Jergins, a very nice and responsive landlord at 425-868-9312 or 425-445-0703. Randi Carter - Delicious Planet

    Depending on how you want to use the kitchen, i.e. demonstrations or whatever, there's a place in Tukwila that you might be able to use!

    Just let me know!

    I met Debra yesterday and got to learn more in depth about the culinary kitchen...which, what it really is is a co-working space for chefs, both in office space and kitchen space!

    Coolest idea - SO smart!

    Think about how many professional chefs have limitations because of commercial space issues or how this might make it cheaper for them to run their business and actually break past getting by!

    She's got another amazing idea on the plate (haha, slaps knee), so to speak - but I won't spoil her glory in letting you all know what it is when she is ready to. :)

    Hi Amy, I realized there was a need several months ago and that is why I opened Creative Kitchen Works...This is built for the smaller food prep companies with a smaller budget and since we are more an incubator then a commercial kitchen we guide them on getting their businesses started. We consider us a boutique kitchen then a commercial kitchen. And yes I agree what these is still a big need for more facilities in the Seattle area and Debra I am sure is doing a great job.

    Best regards, Sandra

    Sandra - We are not close to completion yet. Unfortunately our loan was frozen due to this banking fiasco even though it was preapproved before this all happened. This just means we have to jump a half dozen more hoops before they release the funds.

    I am so looking forward to getting this done and I'm sure we can share business with each other when people are out of our geographical area.

    There is a similar business is Boston with a much smaller space that has 30 businesses working from it so I'm sure we'll have room for many businesses.

    Oh my word! I know we were just right under the wire when we were approved for the last $14,000.00; we actually got the money right before this mess started.... I have sent many people your way so I hope you get your doors open soon.... you have to let me know so I can come in and see your new place!

    Take care ! Sandra

    Because of the delay in financing, we got a late start and it will be after the first of the year when we open our doors.

    There is a place in San Francisco/Bay area called Three Stone Hearth. It's really more of a communal kitchen and I know they have apprentices they utilize there teaching techniques. Most of their offerings are really healthy.

    Great thread! For all of you with kitchens, you'll be happy to know we have launched a new service to list any venue - www.evenues.com - including kitchens. We are also working closely with Biznik to enable direct reservations from within the Biznik event form. Otherwise, you can also list and rent your kitchen or venue off eVenues.com.

    eVenues.com just launched and formal marketing has not begun...we have some great developments coming soon.

    Please contact me with further questions.

    I'm trying to find a kitchen to bake cookies in south King or Pierce counties. I can't find anything but I have run into about 5 others looking for a kitchen to produce baked goods as well.
