Food Handlers Certificate: Shared Kitchens require a high level of sanitation and need to maintain high standards at all times.  Most small businesses already have their ServeSafe Certificate.  If you do not, and are just starting out...all that is involved is taking the course in a class environment or on- line and then taking a short exam.  Servsafe will help you determine what material you may need, where and when classes are offered.

Licensure: You will need your business license in order to work in our kitchen as a small business. This license applies to those looking to get their business off the ground by producing food and selling in it within the community. Proud Mitten requires you have your own license to be able to identify working in our commercial environment. 
If you do not have your license yet, we can be part of the process.  

Liability Insurance: Must be CURRENT and up to date. Likely, you will be carrying your own liability insurance to run your business.

You will need to provide your own liability insurance.

If you do not have all of the above, we can still help. 

CONTACT US to set up a time to talk about your business needs. Every small business is unique. Let's talk about how we can accommodate your company in our community environment.





Proud Mitten is a launching pad for your food business to start to utilize our space and equipment to then sell your product without the heavy start up and build out risks.
