Our Kitchen Space

Kitchen Chicago is a 4000 sq. ft. commercial kitchen facility, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our space is divided into four functional areas: a catering kitchen, pastry kitchen, cool room, and packaging / storage area.

A quick summary of our equipment is listed to the right. The only items we ask our clients to bring are small wares such as utensils and scales, and disposable items (plastic wrap, foil, sheetpan liners, etc).

We can accomodate a wide range of needs, and support growing businesses. We've had everything from one baker to a team of 12+ cooks using our kitchen at one time. Whether its daily production runs or one time catering events for 200+ guests, we have the space.

Reserving Kitchen Time

Each kitchen is booked separately. There is a common warewashing area in the center of the facility, with smaller hand and/or prep sinks in each kitchen.

We handle booking by accepting reservations for the current and next calendar month. Priority is given to standing reservations, allowing our clients to establish a regular schedule. New and additional reservations are handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Ingredients

While you're certainly welcome to bring your own ingredients, as our clients, you'll also be able to order through our accounts with a number of local and national vendors. In most cases, we'll be able to accept and store your items, and will simply bill your account with us for the items ordered. We can even combine orders for better purchasing power, allowing many of our customers access to vendors that may not otherwise be an option.

Cleaning & Supplies

Each customer is responsible for cleaning the kitchen as part of their kitchen use, including all equipment, tables, and floors. We'll supply all the necessary cleaning supplies and will take care of the periodic deep cleans.
