What commercial kitchen sizes are available to rent?

Our commercial kitchen units are 380 sq. ft, and due to their layouts, it means you can add or remove units as and when you need. No paying for space you don’t need! Whether you are a small food pop-up, street food vendor, chain or restaurants seeking a central production kitchen or a catering company needing a space large enough for mass production, we’ve got you covered.

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

All of our commercial kitchen rentals are private and exclusively yours. We’ve been working within the industry for some time, so we know how hectic busy kitchens are. Having a calm and peaceful space is essential for the productivity and efficiency of food businesses, so we give all of our clients their own private commercial kitchen to make their own.

What commercial kitchen equipment is included?

Our kitchen users have niche production, so they all need very unique commercial kitchen equipment and supplies. For this, we ask that all cooking or production equipment is brought in by our clients. We fit our kitchens with the basics you need to get started immediately; extractor fans, drainage, metered utilities (gas, electric, water) and hygienic surfaces – all compliant with health and safety standards.

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 rental, we can come up with a rental plan to suit.
