By sharing kitchen space, you are sharing in the overhead costs of operating a commercial kitchen, working in a fun and collaborative environment, with lots of public exposure and resources to help your business find success. We are all about helping yummy products, and services get out to the people of Saskatoon, by highlighting local ingredients and talent.
