We started in 2015 in London with a simple mission: to make it as easy as possible to find and book a commercial kitchen online.

About us

Kitchup is the UK’s first online marketplace for kitchen space, matching businesses that need a commercial kitchen with those who have it.

We’ve seen first-hand how challenging it can be for time-strapped food businesses to find commercial kitchen space. Faced with endless searching, soaring rents, expensive equipment and long leases - there had to be an easier way.

So, we created Kitchup. A dedicated place to find and book kitchen space. Explore and compare a variety of commercial kitchens available to book daily, weekly or monthly. From shared spaces and private units to pop-ups and media studios, find the right kitchen for you.
