Looking for Kitchen Rental in So. Orange County, CA

post #1 of 88
Thread Starter 
I am looking to start an online baking business. California law requires that food be made out of a health department inspected commercial kitchen. Does anyone here have any good references? I live in South Orange County, California. Would love to find a kitchen in or near Rancho Santa Margarita. Happy Baking!

Did you find the kitchen?

Hi Maribel, I'm also like you, I would like to find a kitchen in South Orange County. If you found one, would you be willing to share the kitchen? Please let me know, thanks!

I found this post at http://www.toomanychefs.net/archives/001303.php:

"Unique FDA Processing plant in Orange, CA available up to 8000sf. The commercial kitchen portion can be leased by the hour or day beginning June 2008. I am currently creating an interest list and providing tours by appointment only. If you are interested please email mari.fassett@culiflex.com.

I also found CuliFlex Kitchens listed in http://cookingwithdenay.com/home-based-bakers/state-cottage-laws/california/

Has anyone in OC heard of this place? I am thinking of sending them an email to get more info.

Don't know about California, but the real estate industry in Texas is in a slump. A buyers market. Been thinking about acquiring an existing restaurant/bakery and repurposing for use an an incubator kitchen. The top of my plus list is I wouldn't have to worry about having an excellent location with tons of parking.

I did send an email to CuliFlex Kitchens (customer.service@culiflex.com) and got a response back with attached overview of their business and application form. It did not go into rates. I guess they don't disclose that until after you apply. They are located in Santa Ana. I wanted to attach the overview they sent me for your own information but I guess that is not allowed here. If you'd like me to send it to you, send me your email address. I intend to fill out and send in the application. If anyone else is interested in taking a look at this place, let me know. I will update this thread either way once I get more information.

post #16 of 88

Okay Maribel, I came upon that also and you need a license and some food handling course...yikes!  So I definitely need to look into that. But I did see a fully supplied kitchen that is for sell...it is not a store front just a good size fully loaded kitchen, thinking about buying it and helping ,us girls that need kitchens, out. Keep you informed.

post #18 of 88

I am in the middle of a huge event, a months planning, so I will have a limited time researching, but Im on a hunt....there are just too many of us girls that need a kitchen. This is my plan, I hope that I will be able to help.

post #19 of 88

I was wondering if anyone has gotten any more information from CuliFlex. I recently found them online and am starting to look into them.

Hi krista! How is the hunt for a kitchen rental place coming along? A friend of mine mentioned a restaurant space with a fairly large kitchen for sale in So. Orange County off of Brookhurst right off the 405. I think that is Fountain Valley. She is trying to get me more info on it and I will update you as soon as I can.

post #25 of 88

OH, that sounds awesome, I'm in if you get any info...otherwise, I will keep looking. Meeting with someone on the legal aspects of it all. We've got to get a kitchen sooo we can get a bakin.chef.gif

If you're still looking for a commercial kitchen:

Not sure what California has to offer, but in Oregon the Military Department is no longer using most of their armory kitchens and they're available for rent. Some are quite large, have the best equipment and have been well maintained. I've rented their kitchens in 2 locations: one shared and one on my own.   Both were great!

My friend found out that the place off Brookhurst is no longer on the market. I think someone had already put a bid on it at the time she found out about it. Sorry for not getting back sooner. So far the only one that seems hopeful at this time is Culiflex. I may go ahead and work on that license and food handling course.
