Established in 2012. Dream Kitchen operates culinary incubators in the Northwest Chicago Suburbs. We provide specialized products and services to entrepreneurs in the food community to help them bring new companies and ideas to market.

Member companies benefit from our flexible and affordable infrastructure, integrated services, and educational programs/workshops.

One of the biggest obstacles to starting a food business in America is the high cost of setting up a commercial kitchen. Dream Kitchen was established to help overcome that obstacle. Our kitchens are fully equipped, and commercially licensed shared-use kitchens. Allowing you to build your business at your own pace, while lowering the risks associated with a start-up venture and minimizing the costs while you start, grow, and establish your business.
