Kitchen 4 Hire
Salina Downtown, Inc. and the Masonic Center announce the opening of “Kitchen 4 Hire,” a culinary incubator within the Masonic Center, 336 South Santa Fe Avenue. Food entrepreneurs can rent the fully licensed commercial kitchen by the hour.
“Both organizations are very excited about this partnership and the opportunity for ‘Foodies’ to see if their business idea will work,” reported Phyll Klima, Executive Director, Salina Downtown, Inc. “This is not just about learning how to cook in quantity. It’s about learning how to be in the business of food.”
Joan Barhydt is the Kitchen 4 Hire Manager. Joan will be working directly with entrepreneurs to make sure they have the knowledge of safe food preparation and the appropriate licenses. According to Joan, “Kitchen 4 Hire” will be available on a 24 hour basis, just in case a baker needs to start at 2 a.m.”
Kitchen 4 Hire is partially funded from a Kansas Department of Agriculture Specialty Crop Block Grant.
