There's lots of options when choosing a kitchen - but SAAGE stands out. Come visit us and you'll see the difference!
We are the FIRST commercially-licensed, dedicated shared-use kitchen serving Naperville and the surrounding west suburb cities.
- Since 2014 -

Convenient Location

We are centrally located in the heart of Naperville, right next to I-88, just off Rt 59. Close to all major cities, our members are from all over the West Suburb. You'll also find plenty of customers in Naperville looking for good food!

Plentiful Parking

We have a huge parking lot, enough for all your employees and assistants. Unload your goods through the back door, directly into the kitchen.

Health Dept Approved

We are reputed and recommended by the county health departments (DuPage, Kendall, Cook, Will & Kane). We are also an FDA-registered kitchen.

Squeaky Clean

Our kitchen manager has a sharp eye for cleanliness and order. We have passed every single inspection since 2015, and visitors always point out that our kitchen is the cleanest they've seen! (Our proudest achievement, we think).


We have several, separate work stations that are large enough to fit 3-4 people. We never double book, so you have the whole station dedicated to your production work, when reserved. No teeny-tiny kitchen work spaces at SAAGE!

On-Site Cafe

Open Wed&Thurs, 11am - 2pm
Fri&Sat, 11am - 4pm

Feature your CPG products in our on-site cafe and in our marketplace.

Member Benefits

24/7 Key Code Access 

Reserve kitchen hours at any time of day or night. Anytime access to your storage for pick-up or drop-off, without extra charge.

Online Reservation Calendar

Our reservation calendar is updated constantly so you always know kitchen availability.

Utilities Included

Water, Gas, Electricity, and (most importantly) WiFi! We take care of the bill, so you can just focus on your business.

Major + Minor Equipment

Our kitchen is divided into several stations. Your hourly rental includes use of all equipment at the station you choose and use of shared tools that we provide. We also allow our members to bring in their own small electric equipment (subject to spec sheet approval) and other tools.

Ware-Wash Area

Use of the ware-washing area is included in your kitchen rental time but can also be rented out separately without kitchen use.

Regular Maintenance

We deep-clean and sanitize the facility every week, as well as manage waste disposal, routine maintenance of equipment, cleaning of the grease trap, cleaning and maintenance of exhaust hoods, and fire alarm inspections.
We are a health-department certified, professional commercial kitchen.

SAAGE provides the infrastructure and support needed by an entrepreneur during their start-up phase and when they want to expand, allowing the opportunity to start from scratch and grow at their own pace. By using our kitchen a business owner will eliminate the need to purchase expensive equipment, sign a long-term lease, take on debt for remodeling, or many other risks that are expected when starting a business.

We welcome caterers, food vendors, bakers, confectioners, food trucks, farmers, food processors, and personal chefs to share our space to create their specialty products as well as support each other in a productive networking environment.

Thank you to our founding sponsors!
