How To Find A Commercial Kitchen That’s Right For You

November 30, 2016 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

At FoodLab Detroit, we created this “How To Series” to help you get started as a food entrepreneur.

It is very important to understand the proper steps needed to turn a recipe into a profitable product. You can’t simply make a food item in your home kitchen, place it in a container, and start selling it. You need to follow the many production and labeling requirements that exist to keep consumers safe. You need to understand the markets you want to enter. You need to get your product to those markets. You need to know how to manage your inventory. You need to determine the correct selling price for your product and much more.

Finding the right commercial kitchen for many food entrepreneurs, is one of the most important steps in their entrepreneurial journey. This workshop covers what to expect from renting commercial kitchen space, the fees and requirements involved in renting commercial kitchen space, the benefits and disadvantages to working in a rented commercial kitchen space and how to find a commercial kitchen space. There will also be a tour of the Ss. Peter and Paul commerical kitchen and a “meet and greet” with several commercial kitchen operators from Metro Detroit.
