Kitchen for rent in MN

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hi, I am a determined baker venturing into a cupcake business. I have my brand and logo all created but hit a road bump when I realized how strict MN food laws are. In order to advertise and sell my cupcakes I need a commercial or inspector approved kitchen to bake in!  Looking for any advice from fellow MN bakers who have came across this dilemma... I would be interested in finding a kitchen for rent but there does not seem to be much available. I currently bake in the Minneapolis area. If anyone in MN has any suggestions or can help I would greatly appreciate it!

Here are a few rental options in your area:

There is a newly opened incubator kitchen in the Minnespolis area. Just google incubator kitchens Minneapolis and it should pop up.

 

I have also found commercial kitchens for rent on craigslist....granted few and far in between, but there.

 

Good Luck. I remember how hard this was when I first opened. Remember to sign the petition for the cottage food law for MN that's circulating

yes, I have looked into Kindred Kitchen briefly... I have also tried Craigslist. I did not know about the petition; I will definitely take a look! Thank you for your replies. It is such a bummer that Minnesota's regulations for this sort of thing are so difficult.

 

@mnsnow Did you end up finding a kitchen before you were able to open your own?

Yes I did. I still rent from the kitchen. I hope to open a store front soon....I found a perfect place with VERY reasonable rent. Now to look at the build out...

May I ask where the place is and how you found it? I feel I am going to have to get very creative in finding a space...

It's in Milaca--- quite a distance from you :)

 

I actually found it through another caker. She was moving out of the area and passed it on to me :)

 

Contact churches, day care centers, American Leigons, anywhere that may have a commercial kitchen. You will probably find one in the least likely place.

Have you found a place to rent yet?

If not, and you're still interested, please contact me, I have some space available to rent in Osseo (between Brooklyn Park and Maple Grove).

@ sbedgood2002 I'm also in the Twin Cities area, in the exact spot where you have space for rent. I'm currently licensed for a different kitchen but next year may consider changing locations. Can I message you for more details about the space you have available?

Sure thing. I'm not tech savy, so you'll have to let me know how to message or if you prefer to email, that would be great too.

Ok I just sent you a PM, hopefully you get it! :)

Go out to Facebook on the MN Cottage Food Law page and like and get the petition links there.  We need to get this passed this year!

Hi, My husband and I are in the process of opening our own bakery. We have also had little luck in finding a building to rent that has previously been used as a commercial kitchen. Do you still have a location available?
