Start Small, Finish Big
We have created an atmosphere for startups mixed with experienced food vendors....a great way to get started. A big barrier to starting a food business in Austin is the expense of building out or leasing your own commercial kitchen. There are many expenses involved in running a large commercial kitchen. Capital Kitchens exists to help you overcome that obstacle. We are a fully-equipped, commercially- licensed, shared-use kitchen in Austin, Texas, allowing you to build your business on an as needed basis with lowered risk and minimized start-up costs. Come fulfill your food business dream in our kitchen!
"Some start big, some start small, all are welcome." -- Trish Wesevich, Owner
Capital Kitchens is a 3,600 square foot, full-service, shared-use commercial kitchen. Chef's area, baker's area and multiple prep areas are shared by our food entrepreneurs. Commercial users have access to hourly or monthly rental of the facilities and the equipment.
