Located at 40 South Main St in downtown Woonsocket is our beautiful, state-of-the-art commercial kitchen, complete with top-of-the-line equipment. This large kitchen space has it all: walk in coolers, storage, freezers, food processors, a blast chiller, a kettle, mixers, slicers, and more! Please contact us if you are interested in using this space and becoming part of the food business movement.
Our space is ideal for individuals looking to start their own food business and want to work out of our leased commercial kitchen. Each business is licensed separately by the RI Department of Health to the kitchen, then rents their time alone in the kitchen to work. We welcome bakers, caterers, businesses that want to sell shelf-stable food products, and more!
Why should you become a member at Millrace Kitchen? Becoming a member is the most ideal way to reduce your start-up expenses, expand your network, develop your business skills, and build supports in a safe environment.

We will support you on the start-up and licensing processes however long it may take. There are many more perks to becoming a member and working with Millrace like opportunities to showcase at our events and reduced event space rentals.
