This is a question to all Home Bakers. If the was such a place that you could rent time in a commercial kitchen enviroment, would you consider renting? It was big enough for 4 staff, all the necessary equipment and a place for you to store. How much would you be willing to pay per hour to have a space on your own?

Not a spam.. I am just curious on the logistics of those who rent. Thank you for your time.

based on past threads, the rates on renting kitchen time ranges from $15 to $75 an hour.

If I could legally bake at home, why would I rent?
If I couldn't legally bake at home, then I'd have to rent.

Obviously I don't understand the question.

Maybe Cherise meant "hobby" baker as opposed to "home baker". She possibly wants to do this for $$

Maybe ....just speculating icon_biggrin.gif If I could legally bake in my home kitchen, I wouldn't even think of spending money to bake somewhere else!

OP - sounds like your idea may be to create a commercial kitchen to rent out space in..(?). In my area such a kitchen is extremely hard to find - and many folks would gladly pay for time. The rate I've seen is $25+ per hour with one that offers a discounted rate for buying a large chunk of time up front. A couple of such kitchens have folded here, since the economy went sour (they were previously kitchens designed after "dinner tonight"-type concepts. Don't know exactly what challenges they faced). The HD restrictions where I live make a home biz nearly impossible financially (keeping me a hobby baker) so a rental kitchen is ideal. Big enough for a staff of 4 AND a place for storage (a HUGE issue) - I would be willing to pay at least $50 pr hour but you have to know the area.
