About Us


The Courtyard Kitchens was created to assist food entrepreneurs looking for access to inspected cooking facilities. The upfront costs for space, construction, equipment and maintenance of a commercial kitchen is not't a great fit for many small businesses. The Courtyard Kitchens allow you to develop your customer base and product line through scheduled access to our inspected commercial kitchen. We offer businesses a competitive edge through shared overhead costs, resources, and dedicated onsite storage. You have all the amenities of an inspected commercial kitchen without the costly and rigorous upkeep, allowing you to focus on your business success. Our goal is to create connections and community within the Region of Waterloo's food industry, working alongside entrepreneurs to meet their needs, and contribute to their success.
