Serviced Kitchens

Regular cleaning, waste management and maintenance. Let us do the dirty work.

The site includes shared kitchens with flexible memberships, private kitchen units, office space, hot-desking, and a fully equipped training and development kitchen.

The site is located within New Covent Garden Market, London's leading fresh produce market specialising in fruit, vegetables and flowers. We are just a stone's throw away from the centre of town, situated amongst many of the new developments in the Vauxhall and Battersea areas including the American Embassy and Battersea Power Station.

The project is being delivered in partnership with Covent Garden Market Authority and is based within The Food Exchange, a new building dedicated to food enterprise in the heart of New Covent Garden Market. So some of London's finest produce suppliers and most exciting new food brands are right on our doorstep.

The project has been supported with grant funding from the Mayor of London through the GLA’s Good Growth Fund, and is committed to fulfilling our mission to help more people from all walks of life start and grow successful food businesses.
