Should you choose to join our family and become a member (we truly hope you do!), your membership fee covers a 6-month period from the client start date (and is non-refundable). This fee helps cover the cost of annual permit renewals, gas, water, electricity, weekly trash removal, monthly pest control, quarterly grease trap disposal, freezer/cooler use and temperature monitoring, equipment repairs, maintenance, cleaning service, cleaning chemicals and kitchen supplies. During the 6-month membership, clients must purchase a minimum of (16) Sixteen hours each month (or $640 per month). Any portion of this time not used will still be billed.

If you only need the kitchen for a one-time event, the $300 membership fee does NOT apply. There is a one-time event fee of $175 + your hourly kitchen rental at $50 per hour (4 hour minimum).
