Sometimes called community commercial kitchens, commercial kitchens, or kitchen incubators; these are licensed facilities (places to make food products under inspection), with space available to rent. Because we’re focused on helping Minnesota food entrepreneurs find resources to help them make products for wholesale markets, we chose to list only larger “commercial” shared facilities.
Most shared commercial kitchens have equipment such as: stainless steel tables, walk-in cooler & freezer, ice machine, commercial dishwasher & sinks, range & oven, stand mixer, food processor, slicer, pots & pans, and other small kitchen ware.
* If you know of a Shared Commercial Kitchen used by Minnesota food companies but not listed, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This list and information are provided as a service to small Minnesota food makers; MDA is not responsible for the actions of and does not endorse any of these entities.
