Melbourne commercial kitchen hire.

In total, Cooking Space has 20 commercial kitchens. You can rent a fully equipped commercial kitchen purpose built to Council Health Department specifications so that you can start your food business quickly. Leave the management of the property and maintenance worries to us so you can focus on your business.

We also provide a kitchen that can be rented on a shared basis. We have taken on the investment risk and reduced it to a fixed cost which includes the cost of utilities and property outgoings. Once you are ready to move into your own kitchen, we have kitchens that can be rented on an exclusive basis subject to availability. You can grow your business with us!

We have two locations, North Melbourne and a new facility at Port Melbourne. Our North Melbourne facility have six dedicated kitchens that only cater to tenants on long term leases. The Port Melbourne facility has 13 dedicated kitchens for long term tenants and one shared kitchen for part-time and casual renters. At Port Melbourne, you will be able to hire a kitchen on a daily basis only, with priority and discounts given to regular users.

We invest time and money in commercial kitchens so you can focus on what you do best.

We cater to more than one business so contact us to arrange an inspection or for more information. Once you are confident with where your business is at you can move into your own kitchen. Cooking Space is a concept that goes beyond the facility. We are here to provide support, advice and industry contacts. Cooking Space will grow with you and your business.


The idea is you pay for the kitchen only when you use it. Everything else we will pay! When it is your turn to use the kitchen, you have exclusive use of it and all the equipment. After all, it is the use of the equipment that generate profits not the ownership. And why pay for something when you don't use it all the time!


Whether you are looking to use the kitchen for a one off event or a regular gig for the next few months, we cater to all schedules. You can access the facility 24/7 to pick things up or drop things off without charge. Bookings are subject to availability.


The rental rate is all you pay, everything else is included. We pay all utilities, outgoings, insurance, commercial bin collection and provide cleaning tools and chemicals. We also repair and maintain the equipment. It is truly worry free.


It is a busy kitchen! As such we have to discourage long term storage. If you only need to store overnight or couple of days, complimentary storage usually can be arranged subject to availability. We provide lockable food grade containers for your security.


No personal guarantees required, just a refundable rental bond subject to our rental terms and conditions. As long as you clean up and there are no damages, the bond is fully refunded.


Contact us to check availability. Then complete our online rental application form by following this link. The booking is confirmed once payment is received. Please check with your local council if you need to register your business. It is your responsibility to obtain the necessary permits beforehand. We will meet with you on your first booking to help you settle in.
