Bronx CookSpace is a fully equipped commercial kitchen that provides flexible, affordable workspace and individualized technical assistance to small food businesses.
Food businesses face tremendous startup costs. By providing affordable space, we give entrepreneurs a place to test products and ideas as they develop and grow cost-effectively. The 4,000 square foot kitchen is divided into four workspaces, or bays, that can be rented alone or in combination. It is ideal for caterers, bakers, and food and beverage manufacturers who would otherwise not be able to afford the commercial kitchen space or equipment they need to start and grow their business.
