Shared Kitchen Long Term Rental Process

Thank you for your interest in our shared rental kitchen. We are dedicated to providing a comfortable and productive environment for all of our entrepreneurs, and to ensure that our rental kitchens run smoothly, we kindly ask that all tours be scheduled in advance.

We understand that impromptu tours can be tempting, but it is important for us to prioritize the work and operations of our current kitchen users. By scheduling your tour in advance, we can ensure that we have the resources and staff available to give you a comprehensive tour while minimizing any disruptions to our entrepreneurs.

Please note that failure to adhere to this policy may result in us being unable to offer rental services to you. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this matter.

Prior to renting space at MSP Kitchenery, the following requirements must be fulfilled to ensure a successful and compliant experience.

  1. Certified Food Safety Manager: To ensure the highest level of food safety, at least one representative from your company must be a certified Food Safety Manager. This certification can be obtained through Instructor Led or Online courses provided by ServSafe. Once you have passed the exam and received your certification, you must apply to become a Minnesota CFPM (Certified Food Protection Manager) through the Minnesota Department of Health. This certification is different from the ServSafe certificate and is mandatory for commercial kitchens.

  2. Contact MSP Kitchenery: Once you have obtained your Minnesota CFPM certification and have progressed past the "ideas phase" of your business (ie: development plan, including establishing your product, company name, forming an LLC, opening bank accounts, creating a logo, etc.), please check out our FAQ's page to answer any additional questions.  You may also contact us at 651.334.8821 (extension 3).  Then fill out the contact form (selecting "Long Term Shared Rental Kitchen").  Once we have received the completed contact form, we can determine if there is available space and if we are a suitable fit.  After this initial conversation, further steps can be taken.

  3. Insurance Coverage: To operate a food business, it is essential to maintain product liability and general liability insurance coverage. The minimum coverage required is $1 million per occurrence and a minimum $2 million annual aggregate, with MSP Kitchenery LLC listed as an “additional named insured”. Proof of insurance must be provided prior to entering into any agreement.

  4. Signing the Agreement: You will sign the agreement, provide deposits, review the policies & procedures manual.

  5. You will upload all of your information (insurance, payment information, licensing documents, etc.) into our online shared kitchen management system.

  6. Business Licensing: A business license from either the Hennepin County Health Department, Minnesota Department of Health or the MN Department of Agriculture is required, depending on your business model. Direct to consumer food businesses generally go through Hennepin County and wholesale businesses are licensed through the Department of Agriculture. We will help you through this process and connect you directly with the appropriate agency and inspector.  Once you have applied for the license, an inspector will work with you to complete a formal inspection.

  7. When you have the times that work for the formal inspection you will let us know so we can reserve the time for you at the appropriate kitchen.

  8. Upon completion of the formal inspection, you will be advised on any next steps you need to take to be licensed.  Once we have complete sign off from the governing agency, we will move forward with the kitchen training.

  9. We will then send you access to scheduling your time in our on-line shared kitchen management software, send you a downloadable link for accessing the building via your smartphone, and answer any other questions you may have.

  10. Proceed forward with utilizing our kitchens!
