Kitchener Oakland is a fully-operating commercial kitchen for startup food businesses to cook and grow in. Our affordable rate model and strong emphasis on cooperation helps nurture food entrepreneurs from fledging to flight in a safe, creative, and low-risk environment.
We handpick the artisans who cook out of Kitchener - we look for micro to small food entrepreneurs who pay particular attention to using local, organic and/or sustainable ingredients as a basis for their food craft and who are conscientious about supporting the local food economy.
Several times a year, we showcase our artisan's food through our pop-up markets and open houses. It's through these markets where artisans get to interface and connect with the community which supports them.
Kitchener Oakland is also a:
* Good Eggs pick-up spot: Tuesdays 4-5pm; www.goodeggs.com
* An occasional Pop-Up Market!
* A private event space
