Why Hire A Kitchen?

Hire a fully equipped, functional commercial kitchen in Perth.

You Just Focus On Your Culinary Dream!

Let us provide the space to cook and grow your food business.


If you’re a chef, caterer, cooking instructor, baker, food truck operator, farmer’s market vendor or any other food entrepreneur with a great food business idea, but don’t want to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in a commercial kitchen up front, we’ve got you covered.


Hi, I’m Don Hancey, chef and WA’s Food Ambassador.

I’ve been in the food service industry for over 40 years and I know very well how expensive, stressful and time-consuming it is to fit out a commercial kitchen.

When you’re building your food business, the last things you want to worry about are the costs associated with:

  • Utility bills

  • Security of the facility

  • Sewage

  • Exhaust systems

  • Pest control

  • Compliance

  • Purchasing, repairing and maintaining expensive pieces of commercial kitchen equipment.

Starting a food business is challenging enough as is.

At THE KITCHEN we are committed to helping local food entrepreneurs and culinary professionals by providing them with a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen in Perth to create, produce and grow their food business.

Low cost. Low risk. Full potential.

THE KITCHEN is a one-stop-shop with access to services you may need, including food technicians, packaging consultants, media and marketing connections.

Our fully equipped commercial kitchen in Osborne Park is open seven days and seven nights a week and is used by chefs for food prep, hospitality training, cooking classes, team builders, product and recipe development, professional food photography and food styling. This fully licensed, operational commercial kitchen is available to you if you’re ready to take your food business to the next level now.

Our second kitchen is coming up in Balcatta in February 2020 so this is your best chance to secure your place in a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen to cook and grow your business.
