Commercial & industrial kitchens

Over the last few decades, industrial, commercial, and commissary kitchens have been a core component of the F&B industry. They specialise in producing vast quantities of food in an efficient, low-cost manner, supplying ingredients and components used by food vendors and outlets across the country.

Despite industrial kitchens being a fantastic business venture, they do not come without risk; industrial kitchens are expensive and require rigorous, hands-on management to maintain sufficient quality and quantity.

Chef Collective provides you with all of the resources required to open and design your very own commercial kitchen. We do this at a bargain in comparison to traditional industrial kitchen formats.

Our commercial kitchen business model promises you convenience and reduced complications, through the management of licensing, equipment procurement, layout and organisation, workflow, inspections, and much more. At the end of the day, we focus on handling the technicalities, so that you can prioritise designing and producing high-quality and amazing food to reap the rewards of operating out of a commercial kitchen.

What is a Commissary Kitchen?

Success for you is success for us. Our commercial kitchens are ultimately designed for one thing: to help you grow and increase profit.

Mass food production

Commissary kitchens (also known as industrial or commercial kitchens) are a type of kitchen specialised in mass-producing, and preparing large quantities of high-quality food and produce for food vendors and consumption in restaurants. They are larger than typical restaurant kitchens as they are designed to keep up with massive orders made by clients.


Lower burden, costs

Whilst these mass-production facilities are quintessential to the success of their clients, opening a commercial kitchen comes at an enormous financial and bureaucratic burden to its owner.


You cook, we’ll take care of the rest

Chef Collective’s Australia-based commercial kitchens provide industrial commissary kitchen owners the solution to various issues. In short, all restaurateurs need to do is provide the raw materials, and we will take care of the rest. The entire design and construction is handled by our specialists, and all you have to do is move into your commercial kitchen and cook!
