Does anyone here know of any commercial kitchens in central iillinois? Me and a friend from school would like to start catering part-time and before i started making a ton of phone calls i was wondering if anyone had any recommendations or suggestions for how to get started in this area. We have or can get equipment and staging stuff. We also have a food handlers license. Before we start our marketing campaign though we'll need to get a few rental kitchens on call. Are most church or VFW kitchens approved for commercial catering use? Obviously that will be dependent on the particular location but im just wondering if these places are the norm for renting space? also is it a super horrible idea to store things in a seperate fridge at my house or is that pretty dangerous to do legality-wise? Im just thinking that fridge space will be the kicker with most of these places. Lastly...for those of you that dont actually have your own kitchen is it pretty rare to have to deal with inspectors? I mean if no one really knows where im cooking then how would an inspector even find out? Will the respond to my ads or something to try and inspect my workplace if i dont have an address listed? Im not trying to do any illegal but it seems like if push came to shove i could probably get away with storage or even working in a chruch or something thats not even certified. Obviously i want to keep this as legal as possible but really...how would they know?
