About this space
Albany Business Centre has found the sweet spot between industrial space and commercial space. With sheds, offices, studios, commercial kitchen, training/conference room facilities all in one spot, we are comfortable in knowing that we have everything we need to provide full support or value to customers or tenants.
The Commercial Kitchen can be accessed 24/7, with keys available for pick up from the lock box or reception prior to your booking. Our kitchen has loads of bench and fridge space, two gas ovens, one electric oven, dishwasher, microwave and plugs (15amp included) for your equipment.
In a bid to cater to many businesses with diverse needs, each tenant in the kitchen has to bring their own equipment and utensils so we don't risk contamination. Our kitchen isn't rated for serving or selling directly, but you can use it as a base to prepare, package and handle food.

You should also bring your own tea towels and paper towels to avoid cross contamination. We will meet with you on your first day to run you through the Kitchen including how to operate all the equipment.
It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct permits. We recommend that you contact your local council's Health Services department to confirm your requirements as you may incur penalties for failure to comply with the Food Act or Food Regulations.
