1) A copy of a valid food handler’s certificate. Halton’s written exam is not being offered during Covid.
There are online equivalents that can be completed in your own time. Here is a list of provincially recognized ones:
2) A copy of a general liability insurance certificate (minimum 2 million coverage)
3) A 250 dollar security deposit, refundable at the end of your tenure at the kitchen
4) A signed copy of our standard agreement. This is not a contract. It outlines the rules and requirements of the kitchen, as well as a code of conduct expected from each kitchen user to ensure a cooperative and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone.
Our goal is to provide a clean, professional, fully-equipped kitchen that will help small businesses enter the food market without assuming the prohibitive costs of outfitting their own commercial space. It’s a cutthroat industry, but the good news is there’s safety in numbers! Since we’re all in this together, here are some terms we’d like our members to abide by:
Time is Everything
Our kitchen is equipped with amenities for many different food businesses and ready for use.
By taking advantage of our facility, you can free up time required to set up your own municipally approved kitchen, and money required to source and install commercial equipment.
Invest your time and money in building your business and creating awareness for your brand instead!
