what does it take?

To rent the kitchen on a recurring basis, it’s a 4 step process to get you started right:

  1. Apply Online here.  Apply for free and we’ll send you a Getting Started Guide. 
  2. Complete your Food Safety Manager training, or provide proof of completion.
  3. Provide documents, incl. business registration and proof of insurance.
  4. Apply for DHEC or Dept of Ag permit.

how long does it take?

Typically, our clients get through the process in 2 – 4 weeks for DHEC permit and a few months for the Department of Agriculture certification.

If you’re already certified/permitted and have a head start on the 4 steps (to the left), you may be able to get started in the kitchen sooner. 

can i rent one time?

Yep!  We can do a one-time use agreement where you can rent the kitchen or photo studio for as little as one hour.  The hourly rental rate will depend on how you plan to use the space.  Click here to Get Started with Us and tell us what you may need.

 

what equipment do you have?

Because we started the kitchen from the ground up to be a shared space for a wide variety of chefs, bakers, and makers, we kept the equipment to the basics.  We have gas ranges, convection ovens, and a large mixer.  We also have commercial grade, tabletop food processor and mixers.  Get more details here.

 

Our purpose and passion is to offer a professional, SCDHEC permitted kitchen for rent where chefs, bakers, and maker entrepreneurs can launch and grow your business.
