Hear how Crafted Kitchen is a game-changer
Crafted Kitchen and Cindi Thompson were an invaluable step in our growth. Always going above and beyond, without Cindi and her facilities, we wouldn’t be where we are today, a national food brand. If you’re looking to make things happen in the food sector, you should absolutely consider Crafted Kitchen.
Crafted Kitchen is our home, truly. We spend more time here than our actual homes. Community and cleanliness were one of the most important factors in us deciding where our business would be; Crafted Kitchen has offered so much more than that. Cindi and Mikey are absolute gems. Without their unwavering support, we would not be where we are today. From tasting our new recipes and offering feedback, finding creative storage solutions for us, and guiding our launch (and successful funding!) on Kickstarter—we are truly grateful for everything this community has helped us through. Stop looking at other kitchens! This is where you want to be.
Good business starts with good community. I arrived at Crafted Kitchen as a fledgling business owner, still finding my way and navigating the many challenges of preparing and selling a quality product. While there, my team formed friendships and compared notes with other vendors, eventually building the confidence and customer base we needed to set out on our own. I will be forever grateful to Cindi, her wonderful team, and the pristinely maintained facilities at Crafted Kitchen.
Choosing Crafted Kitchen for my business was one of the best decisions I made as a business owner.
Crafted Kitchen is a place where one is given all the tools to succeed and thrive as a business. I can focus on my craft while not worrying about all the details of running a kitchen. I also get to be side by side with leaders or emerging leaders in the food industry. It is truly the place to be if you are in or around LA.
There’s no way we’d have been able to feed so many families in need if Crafted Kitchen didn’t exist!
Cindi Thompson generously donated refrigerator and freezer walk in space to us at no charge, and since then she’s continued to volunteer her time.
The world needs more humans like Cindi.
Crafted Kitchen has been my home for over 6 years. It has given me tools and community to grow my business that have been invaluable like knowledge sharing and tips and tricks. Might I add, woman owned by the fabulous Cindi, who makes an otherwise sterile feeling space, feel warm. What would Fridays be without family meal where we all take pause and break bread together? Highly recommend for anyone starting out or looking to expand their at home operation!
Choosing Crafted Kitchen to bake our cookies was a game-changer! The facility is nothing short of amazing—state-of-the-art equipment, spacious layout, and impeccable hygiene standards. Our joy knows no bounds as we’ve seamlessly transitioned from producing hundreds of cookies in my home kitchen to churning out thousands in this commercial haven. Cindi, the creative force behind Crafted Kitchen, is a constant presence, generously sharing her wealth of expertise to elevate your journey and guarantee your success!
The BEST place to grow, prosper + succeed. Cindi + her team are AMAZING: professional, supportive + inspiring. Crafted is the only place in town. Excellence personified! Thank you Cindi for all you do—we wouldn’t be where we are today without you + your exceptional expertise.
Crafted Kitchen is not just a commercial kitchen space; it’s been the heartbeat of our production for the past five years. From day one, it was evident that this was the space where our business would flourish. The cleanliness and thoughtful organization set it apart as the best we’ve encountered.
The support we’ve received from Cindi and the entire Crafted Kitchen team has been invaluable. Through the highs and lows, their guidance has been a constant. In addition, the community of uniquely curated food entrepreneurs working alongside us is an unexpected bonus. In an industry that can often feel isolating, Crafted Kitchen transforms the cliche into a warm, extended family environment. Cheers to five years of growth and collaboration!
Crafted Kitchen didn’t just provide a kitchen space to manage my business, it provided a whole community of chefs, entrepreneurs, and kitchen leadership all rooting for each other’s success. The invaluable advice and support is really what helped grow my business.
