and I just can't hide it! I have found a licenced kitchen!!!!!! I went to go see it yesterday and it's in a church. I can use it mostly whenever I just have to make sure I schedule the time and I can get a key to come and go as I please. Also I pay at the end of the month once she calculates how much time I used for the month. I only have to pay $8/hr and I have to have insurance. I went and applied for my permit and am waiting to do the inspection which should be no problem bc the kitchen is already licenced and inpected for other occupants.

It comes with all the equipment and storage. I'm so excited and I'm waiting for a call from the inspector to come out and I can start my business! Anyone have any advice of things I need to know? Does the price sound ok?

Good for you thumbs_up.gif . I think $8.00 an hour is a great deal. I read on a thread not very long ago that someone had found a church kitchen to rent for $20.00 an hour. I'd say you got a great deal.

That is an awesome price by our standards. How did you find it? Did they advertise that you can rent their kitchen or are you a member of the church?

Sooooo.... the I did the application for the health dept yesterday and they called me today to set up and appointment for 1pm today! I'm so excited. I spoke to the person in charge of the kitchen and she said after my inspection I can start and she will give me a key! I want to scream and cry because I have so much joiy right now. Times have been so hard for my family and I these last three years. God is so good to protect us and provide for us. My husband has been out of work for over a year and we can't even pay rent or car note but we aren't homeless and we still have a car!
