That's just awful that people are giving you rude responces about renting their kitchens! I always thought "if" I ever did this, that it would be easy to get a kitchen to rent! Yikes!
I have heard that basements could not be certified as well, maybe that depends on the county.
I'd be interested to see more on the incubator kitchen, I thought that was happening in Lansing which is too far away for me.
Have you called any churches yet?
I've often wondered if smaller bakeries - more like the little italian ones that are ALL OVER the Macomb area would rent - or a cookie shop?
What about those food prep places where people pay to build meals for the week - do they have ovens and I wonder if they would be willing to rent? There are a few around, but I have not looked up where, except for one in St. Clair Shores which seems to have called it quits.... hmm so if anyone's looking for a building, I bet they have good kitchen space!
