Frequently asked questions.

Everything you need to know 
and more.
What commercial kitchen sizes are available?

We have a range of commercial kitchen sizes to suit any business and scale of productivity. Our units start at 400 sq ft and run all the way up to 4,000 sq ft. So whether you are a small food pop-up, street food vendor, chain or restaurants looking for a central commercial kitchen or a catering company needing a space large enough for mass production, we’ve got you covered.

Will I be using a private or shared-use commercial kitchen?

All of our commercial kitchens are private and exclusively yours.

We’ve been working within the industry for some time, so we know how hectic a busy kitchen can be. Having a calm and peaceful space is essential for the productivity and efficiency of food businesses, so we like to give all of our clients their own private commercial kitchen that they can make their own.

What is a catering kitchen?

Catering kitchens are off-site functional kitchen spaces that businesses use when an on-site kitchen is either impractical or not accessible. On-site kitchens usually come with huge overheads and monthly rental costs, whereas renting a catering kitchen helps to minimise these operational charges.

Our catering kitchens for rent in London come in sizes suitable for any food industry business, big or small. We also provide the standard catering kitchen equipment to help you get up and running immediately, including hygienic surfaces, extractor fans, drainage, and metered utilities, all compliant with health and safety standards.

What commercial kitchen equipment is included?

All kitchens are fitted with the basics you need to get started immediately. We include commercial kitchen extractor fans, drainage, metered utilities (gas, electric, water) and hygienic surfaces. All are compliant with the appropriate health and safety standards.

We ask that any cooking or production equipment is brought in by our clients, as all of our kitchen users have very niche production runs and so they all require very unique commercial kitchen supplies.

What is the minimum contract length for commercial kitchen hire?

The minimum contract term to hire a Dephna kitchen is three months, but after that the ball is in your court. Whether you are looking for a three month, one year or long-term commercial kitchen space, we can come up with a rental plan to suit.

How do I rent a commercial kitchen?

Renting a commercial kitchen couldn’t be easier, just let us know what size unit you would like to rent and the London location that suits and we’ll get the ball rolling. If you’re struggling to decide what size commercial kitchen you need, we can suggest the best option based on your needs and production. If you’re happy, you just need to secure your space with a three month deposit and one month rent in advance and you’ll be cooking on gas in no time.

How much does a commercial kitchen cost to rent?

Commercial kitchen costs depend on your circumstances – you don’t want to be paying for space you don’t use. Our commercial kitchen rates are based on the size unit you occupy. For our smallest 400 sq ft kitchen, prices start from £1,500 per month, plus utilities.
