SO, I'm here in St. Louis, Missouri and since closing my mall location I've been looking for a commercial kitchen to rent. My fiance who is a business owner in plumbing and constructions thought how about finding a commercial space and moving the equipment in there for your prep space and renting out space to other "food" related businesses. Not a bad idea, but before moving forward I wanted to get a sense of what the needs were in St. Louis. I know it's tough to find space and because I had a retail location in a local mall that didn't work, I know all to well the financial toll renting a space can take. I'm not looking to charge nearly as much as some of the other placings out there. I want to be fair because small business take time to build and the one thing they lack is continual cash infusion. So with that, I'm looking for 6-8 businesses willing to commit to at least 10-15 hours of kitchen time per week. I plan to only rent to 6-8 at a time. The space will be secured and centrally located in the county of St. Louis MO (areas like U-City, Webster Groves, Kirkwood and Clayton are being considered). Let me know if you have a need or pass this on to someone you know is looking for kitchen space.
what an awesome opportunity
