We started our lunch delivery, corporate box lunch, & on & off premise catering business by finding a kitchen that was not being used in a local nightclub. The advantage to this over a church kitchen was there was never any daytime scheduling conflicts, and we also contracted to sell food to their guests on the weekends...serving a 2am brunch was also an idea we talked about. Our initial agreement was for a percentage of our NET sales, & our portion of the utilities(do your homework on their past bills so you don't wind up paying too much winter or summer) Also, make sure they are on firm financial footing, so you do not have to learn this lesson the hard way like we did. (Churches rarely go out of business.) We are now in an old theater & put our own kitchen & offices in the large basement. Going to auctions & grocery stores reoutfitting their kitchens made this financially possible for us.
Good luck!
