It’s common for kitchens to charge a combination of flexible, per-hour pricing, a monthly lease and a security deposit.
Hourly rates vary but tend to range between $15 and $20 per hour.
Kindred Kitchen, for example, charges $16 an hour, which is adjustable depending on need and how many hours you rent each month.
Can I rent out my commercial kitchen?
Commercial kitchens or commissaries often have equipment which can be leased out for a small fee. A restaurant owner may rent out his kitchen during off hours. You can also find other certified commercial kitchen spaces with churches, public and private schools, hotels, retirement homes, and cooking schools.
What is needed for a commercial kitchen?
A commercial kitchen needs industrial-grade equipment that can withstand busy restaurant use.
A general checklist of everything you need to outfit your restaurant kitchen:
- Reach-in cooler.
- Walk-in cooler.
- Freezer (either a chest, upright, or walk-in)
- Sauté pans.
How much does it cost to rent a commissary kitchen?
Commissary kitchen rates depend on the location, but costs can range between $15 – $35 an hour. In the beginning, paying this fee is worth it to get started and use the equipment, but if your truck becomes successful and grows, it’s cheaper in the long run to lease your own kitchen space.
