Kitchen Rental

  • Are you looking for a fun, unique team building event for your staff?
  • Are you looking for a way to get to know your organization and bond as a group? 
  • How about gathering friends around a fun, creative meal? 

Renting out the Demonstration Kitchen is a great way to do just that! Cook a meal together, split into teams and have a bake-off, or even recreate your favorite cooking show!

What should I know before I book?

  • Participants must bring their own food
  • 15 participant max
  • 4 hour rental time slot: $200 @ $50 per hour
  • Rental includes use of the Demonstration Kitchen & Wellness Conference Room 

How does this promote team building?

  • By assigning teams ahead of time, supervisors can group together individuals who don’t usually work together. This gives coworkers an opportunity to get to know each other.
  • Each team must use problem solving skills and work together when they are (Surprise!) reassigned a new course to cook without using a recipe.
  • Each team must work together to choose recipe(s) that will be feasible in the time frame and budget they have been given.
