Questions & Answers


Do you have kitchens for rent on an exclusive basis?

Generally, we put businesses that require full time hours in one of our dedicated kitchens (not shared) on a long term rental agreement. The North Melbourne facility has five dedicated kitchens and one shared kitchen. As the dedicated kitchens are rented on a long term basis, they are only available from time to time. Please contact us to check availability.

Can I change/cancel my booking?

Generally, we don't accept cancellations once a booking is confirmed. This is to ensure that cancelled bookings do not prevent others who may have wanted to use the kitchen at the same time. We do accept rescheduling of bookings with 48 hours notice to another time slot within the same calendar month subject to availability.

How does sharing work?

Sharing means several businesses take turn to use the same kitchen. We do not allow more than one business to use the kitchen at any one time. This is to limit any cross contamination of food and processes. Cold and dry storage areas are also shared. Generally, regular users are allocated one container of cold and dry store as complimentary. Or if you have a large amount of storage, you can do so only overnight as our storage capacity are limited.

Do you offer discounts for working after hours?

Yes we do. For any hours of your booking that fall between the hours of 11pm and 6am, we give up to 10% discount. Further discounts may be considered depending on the amount of hours booked.

Is there a bond?

Full payment of the invoice is required in advance of your booking to confirm it. We require the payment of a $500 refundable bond for all bookings. This amount is increased to $1,000 for businesses that are registered with Council using our kitchen address as their fixed premise address. To ensure the bond is not deducted, you are required to leave the kitchen clean with no damages. Do not remove any items that belong in the kitchen. Registration with Council is your responsibility.

What happens if I don't finish on time?

If you are running overtime, you need to contact us to ensure there isn't a booking following you. If there is, you will need to finish up and clean up immediately. If there isn't you can continue working and the additional hours will be invoiced separately or deducted from the bond. Please ensure you leave at least 30 minutes for cleaning and to also include packing and unpacking time.

Can I receive deliveries?

Yes. The facility is accessible 24/7. Where possible you should try to schedule your deliveries during your time in the kitchen. It is your responsibility to ensure your food is secure and not tampered with. If you are not on site to accept deliveries please try make arrangesments with us. Otherwise, no one will accept your delivery. We do not charge for picking things up or droppings things off.

What do I need to bring?

You have full use of all the equipment and basic pots and pans in the kitchen. You should bring your own utensils so you know they are not broken and fit for your purpose. You should also bring your own tea towels and paper towels to avoid cross contamination. We will meet with you on your first day to run you through the kitchen including how to operate all the equipment.

Not Sure if this is Right For You?
