Fully equipped, affordable licensed kitchen space
We Partner with Seattle Commissary Kitchen
Ventures has partnered with Seattle Commissary Kitchen to offer Ventures graduates affordable kitchen space. Business owners are able to form a contract directly with the Seattle Commissary Kitchen and choose their plan accordingly.
The kitchen is fully equipped and includes storage space. Flexible scheduling is available, making this a great option for small businesses that are just starting out. Ventures referrals are offered an introductory year of a lower monthly minimum of $200 (as opposed to $500) if they choose a Flex-Schedule Membership. After a year, they will be invited to re-sign at the current monthly minimum rate if they are still operating as a Flex-Schedule Member. All other rates are the same. Ventures referrals are treated as full members from the beginning, all Ventures graduates will still have access to free business coaching and access to our capital program for financial support.
Seattle Commissary Kitchen space offers:
- Available 7 days per week, 24 hours a day
- Flexible and Set-Schedule Options
- Located at 4634 E Marginal Way S. in Seattle with additional locations available throughout the area. More information.
