Food Trucks

Depot services

Most food trucks cook on the truck, but they need a depot--somewhere safe to clean, sanitize and keep food.  In addition to being a health department requirement, Food Trucks who reliably use a depot are known to be cleaner and safer to buy from for your customers.  Also, you can order your supplies from the least expensive wholesalers and allow FK staff to take your deliveries while you are working.  So you are making money and we are saving you from running around town.  .

Food Products

New on the market

Whether your specialty is jerky, nuts, juice or your grandma's secret cookie recipe, we offer what you need to produce your products for sale.  Have custom equipment?  We have room in our kitchens for you to bring in your own, too.  

Businesses may start small but with work, dedication and passion they grow. We are here for serious entrepreneurs who are ready to put in that work and passion, even if you start small.  We have the basic equipment for everyone making food; tables, mixers, large ovens, stoves, and even an indoor grill.  We provide all the big basics--pots, pans, equipment, carts.  You bring your small wares and equipment specific to your needs. 

We have four categories of membership:

  • Full-time: you are really serious and ready to dedicate to your business 100%.  You have 24/7 access to the kitchen.   You need minimal assistance or training in managing your business but need to produce.  A lot.  You’ve got this.  
     
  • Part-time: business is growing, and you have no problem being a night owl.  You can use some leads but you have a good plan and implementation is taking hold.  You come in to work 6pm-7am M-F and/or all day Saturday and Sunday.  
     
  • Food Truck: Just need the depot services (parking and cleaning) and a bit of storage (2 shelves included) with everything else covered on the truck. 
     
  • Manufacturer: You make a special food product and have all the equipment you need, but you need a commercial kitchen to make it in.  

Our membership rates are designed to best fit your company's needs.  Prices start at $550 per month.  Our application process is simple; we want to meet you and ensure our relationship can be profitable for both of us.  We provide a tour and free consultation with our business experts.  Contact us today to find out more.

Two Locations.  Endless Possibilities.

 

Our facilities are designed to provide what you need for your business to grow.  We supply equipment, pots, pans and storage space.  Also, with our unlimited hours you can be assured that the more you work, the more you earn without fluctuating overhead for your new company.
