Policies and Rates
All companies and individuals must have insurance and a food-handling certificate. It is the responsibility of the renter to provide documentation to the Regional Health Department. Visit our Resources page to find more information on these requirements. The food handler certificate must be recognized by the province of Ontario, on-line courses are available. You are responsible for all other business licenses required by law in your specific field.
A $300 security deposit is required from all who rent the kitchen. Security deposits are fully refundable providing the space and equipment are left in good and clean working order.
A clean and orderly facility is essential to successful products and business. Renters are expected to leave the kitchen in the same condition (or better!) in which they found it. The Kitchen Manager will outline the expectations for clean up during your initial meeting. A cleaning fee will be deducted from your security deposit if the kitchen does not meet cleanliness expectations after use. A flat fee of $30 dollars applies for up to an initial 1/2 hour of the Kitchen Manager's cleaning time. Beyond that, the fee increases by $15 dollars for every additional 15 minute increment of the Manager's cleaning time.
Time overruns are not acceptable. All prep work and clean up must happen within your appointed time block(s). For new and growing businesses we know it can be difficult to determine the time needed in the kitchen. When booking please allow yourself enough time for both prep work and clean up. For those who are not time conscious, overrun fees of the cost of the next time slot will be charged.
