You have a talent for cooking. Your family and friends encourage you to pursue your dreams; they enjoy the delicious products of your creation and believe that you can make money from your efforts. “This belongs in a restaurant!” “You need to mass-market this food! You could even sell this in stores!” You hear these complimentary refrains over and over, but the idea of actualizing these fantasies feels too daunting. Where will you come up with the start-up costs to purchase the commercial kitchen equipment? How will you pay for the exorbitant rental costs of the commercial kitchen space you might need?
The cost of constructing a commercial kitchen can be overwhelming, even before the equipment is purchased. Martin Kovic Milford Architects estimates average costs for construction of a commercial kitchen to be $300-$500 per square foot. You may not be willing or able to take out hefty loans, remortgage your home, or blow through your life savings just yet.
