PK is a shared-use facility, equipped with a large variety of commercial kitchen tools, utilities and preparation equipment. By joining this shared community of kitchen coworkers, each Membership gets the ability to reserve access to any of the PK offerings but with the understanding that the Kitchen is a shared space and that each Member, and all its associated staff/employees, must be mindful to respect and honor the space(s) dedicated to the other Members working out of the Kitchen.
To maintain harmony amongst Members, PK has booking systems in place that allow each Member to review Kitchen space availability so usage can be booked in advance and without creating conflict with the other Members’ usage. Additionally, an onsite Kitchen Manager (not full-time) is available to assist with the inquiring and scheduling of available space in the Kitchen.
