How do you go about finding a Commercial kitchen?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
In Missouri, (from what I have been told), you are not allowed to run a cooking or baking business out of your home, to sell the products. I have no contacts with restaurants, so I can't ask people if I can rent their kitchen on off days, to do my baking.

Any suggestions on who I could contact, or how to find places that might be willing to rent their kitchens out by the days that they are closed or hourly, without making possibly hundreds of calls?

I know in some cities there are non-profit organizations that will help small baking/cooking businesses get started "cheap".

TIA
hahaha, whatever.

I think what you're talking about is Incubator Kitchens. There is usually a central non-profit that runs it and often there are other work or artist spaces alongside the kitchens, making it a coop-type situation. There is only one that I know of in my city, but it was set up specifically for low-income women of color, so I did not qualify.

You could also try your city's Parks and Recs department. I did that too, but it was too expensive.

In the end, what got me a legal kitchen to work out of was good old-fashioned networking.
