What We Offer

Often referred to as a commissary kitchen, kitchen incubator, cooperative kitchen, or test kitchen, “Chill” provides fully equipped, commercially licensed shared-use kitchens available for rent by the hour. We’ve taken the considerable financial risk of opening and operating a commercial kitchen and reduced it to a fixed cost on which to base your business plans. In addition, our hourly rates mean you only pay for what you use, removing the burden of long leases for small or young businesses. You can start with us, grow with us, and when the time is right, move from our kitchen into your own.


Hours are 6 am – 6 pm | 7 days a week.
