Christi, first you must have the kitchen owner draw up a lease agreement that specifically absolves him/her of any responsiblity for your catering actions, then your general liability policy should list him/her/their company as an "addtional insured" to protect them from any lawsuits that may arrise from your operations...the agreement should spell out what the lessor is responsible for & what the lessee is responsible for, times you can use the kitchen, space for your dry, refer & frz storage, and make sure you have insurance coverage to cover your property & inventory while it is on thier premises, in case something untoward happens to the the building.....hope this helps....sam
