The Cook Tucson floor plan will focus on flexibility to accommodate a variety of food businesses. The 3200 square foot building will house a studio kitchen for cooking classes or for private rental, a shared kitchen that can hold up to six different food businesses at one time, walk-in refrigeration/freezer space and a retail market where food businesses can sell their products made onsite.

Architect, Vince Catalano, Contractor, Ted Curtis from Hidden Hollow Construction, equipment vendor, Alan Katz from Expert Restaurant Supply, finalize plans for Cook Tucson.

“Over the last several months, we’ve been meeting many different types of food businesses across Tucson – all with different needs. I believe this layout will give us the best chance of accommodating as many of them as we can,” said Corinne Tso, owner and founder of Cook Tucson. “This is a really exciting time for Tucson. There simply hasn’t been enough commercial kitchen space for food businesses. For the first time, Tucson is going to have the¬†infrastructure to support the entrepreneurs that have been struggling to get off the ground.”
