It has been a while since our last update. Sounds like a Star Trek episode....but

We are all excited to open but there have been some delays. With all the red tape we didn't expect, we will ignore it and look at the progress.

At this time, we have our building permit as the City of Brantford has kindly pushed it through quickly. Our heating and cooling system is in! Our cooler and freezer walk-ins are getting new doors! The rest of the repair will soon be finished. They are really a nice size and will fit all of our storage needs.

Next steps:

  1. Ventilation hood.. Once ordered, the ventilation hood will take 4 weeks to arrive and then installation will begin.
  2. Installation of sinks, dishwashers, access for the Community Kitchen for sinks, dishwasher, new bathroom.
  3. Community Kitchen will be done in sync with the back and we will soon be inviting you wonderful people, our clients, in to see as we are finishing. This will give us the opportunity to see what you need, and we can accommodate it.

Hold tight everyone! It is still a bumpy ride. My hope is that by end of day today - my update will provide a smooth ride.

Drawing has been initiated, building permit to follow, contractors engaged,all equipment is now on board and waiting.

Updating the business plan tomorrow to adjust timeline. September 1st is the new conservative date for opening and offering services.

Please let me know through by contacting us. I want to know what membership you are interested in, what we need to have available for you, and any other requirements.

We would love your suggestions for the Community Kitchen. This is a separate kitchen in the front of the building that will look like a residential kitchen. It has fridge, dishwasher, wall ovens, and an island with a gas cooktop. The island will be surrounded with a higher counter and tall stools.

It will be certified and available as a commercial kitchen but will also be available for classes, demonstrations, events.

There are 2 tables, One can seat 18 if needed and a long bar stool height that will also seat 12. This kitchen can be used for events, workshops, meetings, packaging, assembling gift baskets, and whatever you need...

The community kitchen will also be available 24/7 for use.

We value and appreciate your suggestions. This is OUR Kitchen Brantford. And we love small business....
