How do you access these services?

First, visit our Client Inquiry Form: this allows us to learn more about you and your starting point. We want to sit down and meet to determine where you are as a business, and whether renting kitchens is your best next step, or more R&D is needed first.

Second, set up your one-time orientation/consultation/tour! This will cost $80 and is up to 3 hours.

Want to learn more, but not sure if you're ready for the consultation? See the Rate Sheet for more information.
