If you’re thinking about getting into the food truck business, you’ve likely heard the term ‘commissary’ thrown around. A commissary is an important part of your mobile business.
Compliance with Coastal and Fraser Health codes and laws are the most important part of getting your permit and keeping the health department happy. In some cities like greater Vancouver, food truck operators must work out of a licensed food establishment, like a commercial kitchen at a commissary that provides a clean environment that is also certified for that use.
This same principal applies to food stalls at farmers markets and festivals. It is also easier to make and prepare your food in an assembly-line fashion rather than in the confines of your truck. Mountain Commissary can provide that extra elbow room to make sure your food looks as good as it tastes.
The kitchen is available by the hour, on a first-come, first-serve basis, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We can work with you to schedule a one time use the next day, or regular recurring time slots. Our standard rate packages are as follows:
Includes 8 hours a month.
Additional Hours are $20/hour.
This package is ideal for farmers market vendors who use the kitchen just a few times a month in preparation for the weekend farmers markets.
Includes 40 hours a month.
Additional hours are $20/hour.
This package is for members requiring 4-5 full work days in the kitchen per month.
60+ hours a month.
