RTK is where the community will gather to savor original, fresh dishes

and celebrate an inspiring collection of local culinary artists and entrepreneurs.

A shared kitchen is a great option for local entrepreneurs since it allows businesses to grow and flourish without being bogged down by the high overhead costs of a commercial kitchen facility. Everything is taken care of so you can focus on making and selling food.
