This is an exciting day...going to look at a rental kitchen!

What questions should I make sure to ask? What should I look for in the kitchen?

Thanks for any tips/advice!

after looking at the kitchen and getting some info, it turns out that their kitchen license has expired. who would be responsible for getting in inspected again, me or them as the landlord?

They need to have initial permit to run kitchen. WHen you apply, health dept will check to make sure it is a "permitted" kitchen. If not you're at a standstill...

good luck

thank you...that's what i was thinking too. i hope they're not going to tell me i have to pay for all that crap. if they do, i'll gladly look for another kitchen, a licensed one!

In many areas, when you rent someone else's commercial kitchen, you must also be inspected by the health department (even if the kitchen already has been inspected for other tenants). The inspection certificate typically applies only to a specific company baking at a specific location.

If there are issues with the facility, the landlord would be responsible for taking care of that. Of course, the landlord could refuse, in which case you would look for another rental kitchen.
