How Your Sonoma County Business Could Benefit from Renting Commercial Ghost Kitchen Space

A “Ghost Kitchen” or “Commissary Kitchen” is a shared commercial kitchen space established for foodservice providers to rent out and prepare their food in. While ghost kitchens contain everything a typical restaurant kitchen requires, the biggest difference is they don’t offer a dining area or access for walk-in customers. 

Generally, businesses that rent a commercial kitchen space have a different physical location(s) where they can sell their food and services, but lack a professional setting to prepare it. The kitchen space is typically shared, but many commercial commissary kitchens provide private usage for renters. 

At Franchettis’, we offer a fully licensed and inspected commercial ghost kitchen facility that is outfitted for most any professional food preparation. Read on to learn how renting a commercial ghost kitchen space could greatly benefit your Sonoma County business, as well as all the amazing accommodations they provide.

1. Ghost Kitchens Ensure Professional Bakers Always Have Fresh Baked Goods

For a Sonoma County bakery business, a commercial commissary kitchen presents a multitude of benefits. A ghost kitchen can accommodate flexible rental hours, to allow bakers time to prepare all their delicious baked goods and always have fresh products available. You will also have access to professional commercial kitchen equipment that can be too expensive for many small business owners.

At Franchettis’ we offer a number of accommodations for bakers including two convection ovens, Hobart 60qt mixer, and much more. Contact Franchettis’ to learn more about renting our kitchen space for your bakery operation.

2. Streamline Your Catering Company’s Prep Time

Running a catering company requires a lot of space, as well as time, to prepare an extensive menu. In a commercial ghost kitchen, local catering companies can utilize the large space to create a considerable number of dishes for their clients. Utilizing a commissary kitchen can also help catering businesses cut down on food waste, while streamlining their prep and cooking time.

The Franchettis’ kitchen features a number of things that can benefit caterers, including a six-burner stove and oven, plenty of storage shelves and prep tables, and much more. Reach out to us today to learn more about all the accommodations we can offer your catering company.

3. Ghost Kitchens Provide Access to Essential Kitchen Equipment for Farmers’ Market Vendors

Farmers’ market vendors are all unique and offer a number of different types of edible treats! Having fresh products on hand can be a challenge without regular access to a commercial kitchen. Ghost kitchens are typically equipped with a large variety of professional kitchen equipment and tools that many vendors require.

Whatever your specialty is, Franchettis’ ghost kitchen space is sure to have the tools you need to perfect your craft just in time for the Farmers’ Market season in Sonoma County. Contact us today to schedule a tour of our space!
