Use our commercial kitchens to process your food product.

Our kitchens are inspected and state approved for commercial use – allowing you to become licensed to produce and sell food items in accordance with state regulations. 

  • Pay only $18/hour (less if you are a kitchen member!) – a fraction of the cost of renovating/converting a home kitchen or building a commercial kitchen.
  • Choose from three locations – Aurora, Sister Bay, and Sturgeon Bay.

Become a kitchen member!

Enjoy these benefits by becoming a member of one of our shared-use kitchens:
