  1. Hello my name is Malinda Brown, and I am looking for a venue to rent for a food tasting for my client with access to a kitchen. Do you offer any services like that or know of a company that does?

    1. Hi Malinda,

      Primarily, Detroit Kitchen Connect is a network of full service shared, commercial kitchens that provides a place for our clients to create the latest (and best) packaged food products, become caterers, sell at local markets and more. But yes, we’re also available for “every day” non-business use, such as food-related parties, retreats, tastings, cooking/canning classes, fundraisers and more. Please email me at, I would like to hear more!
