Kitchen 24, a 35,000 square-foot kitchen rental space in North York, recently announced plans to expand to accommodate as many as 100 food businesses and restaurants under its roof. Opened in 2017, Kitchen 24, a retrofitted factory, is already one of Toronto's largest cloud kitchens. The new project, Cloud Kitchen 24, will be 50,000 square feet and provide even more chefs and food entrepreneurs a place to work, connect and collaborate with other like-minded individuals.
Kitchen 24 currently offers 35,000 square feet of top-quality commercial storage and kitchen space and areas for food photography and private events. The space also houses several kosher and gluten-free kitchens. From its inception, the idea behind the cloud kitchen was to build a creative community. It's a place meant to help budding chefs and food businesses grow their brands and learn from others in the business. "I saw a real opportunity to build a community here," said founder Steve Kidron in an interview with the Globe and Mail in 2018. "[A] community that supports each other and gives to those in need."
Now, as the pandemic lays waste to the hospitality industry, a space that allows people to build their dreams without having to worry about overhead, is a godsend. "[W]e will begin our application process at the beginning of August to select the top 100 businesses and restaurants to take part in this amazing project," reads a message posted to Kitchen 24's Instagram page in late July. "We believe in your vision here at Kitchen 24, so come help us build the world's largest food community."
Cloud Kitchen 24 is set to open by early 2021. For more information or to apply to be a part of this new project, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
