Our rates depend on how much time you reserve and pay for in advance.
Our minimum rental is four hours in one block, one time. For that
minimum, the fee is $125, which works out to $31.25 per hour. On the
other hand, if you reserve and pre-pay eight hours per week, for six
months, you can rent 208 hours (26 weeks, 8 hours per week) for $2175,
which about ten dollars per hour. If you rent even more, the prices are
even less. For example, renting 40 hours per week, for six months, the
total cost is $6000, which works out to $5.76 per hour! You won't find
a better rate anywhere.
Because we have four separate, fully-equipped work centers, and because
we are open 24 hours per day, every day of the year, you can rent the
time slots that are best for your business.
For the first eight tenants who book a 208-hour package, we are offering
a special deal, only $1800 for the first six months. We will begin
accepting reservations about April 20.
Reservations and payments are made online, using our members-only area
of the web site. You can request an account from the login page. Our
payment processor is Google; we don't ever obtain your credit card or
account numbers, which should provide you with some peace of mind and

from the county. You will also need $1 Million in liability insurance.
You must agree to our kitchen rules, and sign our agreement on these
rules, as well as a liability waiver. You must post a $10,000 equipment
bond (we can help you obtain this bond; it is quite affordable) and make

Regarding storage: we offer "dry storage" to tenants who make six-month
commitments, at no charge. Dry storage is provided in lockable, mobile
cages called security carts. Each security cart is 60 inches tall, 18
inches deep, and 48 inches wide. It has four shelves within. In
addition, we will rent walk-in refrigerator and freezer space to
six-month tenants. The refrigerator space is provided through lockable,
enclosed, full-size pan racks, or security carts, depending on your
needs. The freezer is divided into individual lockers. Both
refrigerator and freezer space rent for $2 per day, per rack or locker.
