The Pasco Specialty Kitchen (PSK) is a state-of-the-art certified commercial kitchen for local entrepreneurs. The PSK is an innovative approach to growing companies and creating jobs in our community. Established in 2003, our commercial incubator kitchen is certified by the Washington Health Department.
To meet the needs of our local culinary entrepreneurs, a fully-equipped, licensed commercial kitchen – at a reasonable cost – can give small businesses the needed resources for success. Anyone – from home cooks to restaurants chefs – can translate their culinary specialty into a manufactured, packaged, commercial product. The rent is $12-18 per hour for local food-based businesses.
The process to become a PSK client and use the kitchen facilities typically runs 30-45 days due to permit and license registrations from local and state agencies. Please plan ahead and ensure all the proper paperwork is in hand so you don’t miss out on potential events or activities. Completing the form below is the first step to starting a food business and becoming a PSK client.
The funding for the PSK was provided by the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA) Program and the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program of the Washington Department of Housing and Community Development, managed though the City of Pasco.
