Garden State Kitchen is a kitchen incubator that provides an ecosystem of support services for culinary entrepreneurs. Starting any business has its challenges, but food-based businesses have their own unique set of obstacles to overcome. One of the first and most common problems food-based businesses face is finding suitable commercial kitchen space in the area. Our aim is to address that need by providing
low-risk access to clean and affordable kitchen space.
We are located in the Valley Arts District of Orange, NJ, which is a vibrant artist community, bustling with the energy of a burgeoning arts scene. The building itself formerly housed an ironworks company, as referenced by its trademark banner painted across the top of the facade. Filled with natural light thanks to the windows, roll-up doors, and skylight, the building is conducive to the culinary arts generated in the space. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the building was also perfectly suited for being converted to a kitchen by the Garden State Kitchen team, due its open floor plan and existing robust electric, gas, and plumbing infrastructure.
