Commercial and Test Kitchens

Perth County is cultivating new food businesses with our Perth County Kitchens program. Fully-equipped and certified shared-use commercial kitchens are available for rent by the hour.

For those starting up a new prepared foods business, these kitchens reduce the financial risk of opening and operating a commercial kitchen during early stages of your business. Due to the fact that you only pay for the time you use a kitchen, the burden of a long lease is something your business will not have to bear. You can start with us, grow with us, and when the time is right, move from our kitchen into your own.

This affordable kitchen space can also help established businesses expand. Kitchens can be used for menu planning, training, taste testing, product development, brainstorming, and of course, production. This results in market-ready products that can be sold in cafes, restaurants, markets and grocers throughout Perth County and beyond.

Kitchens are available in Mitchell, Milverton, Atwood and Listowel. The kitchen is available during facility hours of operation on a first-come, first-served basis.
