    Food Factory Licensed Shared Kitchen

    Hi,

    I am thinking about starting a small bakery shop as a side business, what would require to bake my products on a bi-weekly base as I would like to kick off on a bake to order base. It seems to be as good as impossible to obtain a Food factory license on a residential address, as there are many requirements..

    Since it's a side business I won't be able to rent a commercial space and obtain a food factory license for this place. Hence, I am wondering if anyone could advice on an affordable shared licensed kitchen? Since I can bring my own equipment, a little kitchen with a sink would basically do the trick..

    Thanks!

    See if you can connect with Lori Granito - search Google and Facebook for her. She used to run a shared kitchen facility / incubator a few years ago. Don't think she is doing it but she might have some pointers for yiy.

    Also search for baking mania and drop them a line and see if they have some spare capacity for you to use. Amazing business and good people..

    Quite a few home bakers / groups on Facebook and many if not most of them are baking at home and bending the rules a little bit - to sell commercially as a side business. Lots of mums have gotten started and continue to bake from home.

    I have some friends with a kitchen that has a Food Factory Licence. You can PM me if you are interested and I can get details if they are interested to rent out.

    Thanks both!

    I have googled for Lori, but it seems that the mail address on her website is not in use anymore.. However, I found the below organisation, they offer kitchen sharing services for very affordable prices.
