Commissary Kitchen Concept

Small business owners have the opportunity to rent certified commercial kitchen areas at contracted rates. This membership is designed for businesses certified in food handling. Space is limited so the amount of on-site food storage compares to the level of membership selected. Scheduling is completed through an online system, is self-service, and monitored by arts center staff.
