The Hive is a shared commercial kitchen space available to rent 24 hours a day. We currently occupy 2400 square feet at 25520 Pheasant Lane in Channahon, Illinois. Our two kitchens have stations for cooking, baking, and prep work. We offer optional cold and dry storage space at an additional fee.

If you’re interested in joining The Hive and renting space, please read about our Insurance and Certification requirements and membership or hourly use rates.

The Hive Kitchen Store is open to the public Monday through Friday 12pm to 6pm and we sell items created by the clients who rent out the kitchen. What is in stock varies day to day depending upon what our cooks have on their menus. Read more about the Hive Kitchen store here.
