Commercial kitchen operator Karma Kitchen launches first Wimbledon site
McDonald’s will be one of its first partners for the commercial kitchen.
Karma Kitchen, the commercial kitchen operator, has announced the launch of its sixth site, a 14,682 sq ft, 26-unit strong location in Wimbledon, South West London.
The new commercial kitchen is close to densely populated areas like Wandsworth, Tooting, and Earlsfield. According to Karma Kitchen, the location creates opportunities for new partners to expand their production to community-driven, light-filled, and innovatively designed spaces.
The Wimbledon location has a variety of kitchen floorplans, so partners can choose a space that's specific to their production needs.
Karma Kitchen estimates that its unit can be as much as 97% cheaper and 20 times faster to occupy than a traditional space, and every site is designed with the staff in mind, including a central break area and naturally lit kitchens.
McDonald’s is the first partner to open at the site, taking a 2,000 sq ft delivery kitchen that it has customised to suit its own operations and production methods.
According to Karma Kitchen, McDonald’s decision to choose Wimbledon was based on a strategic assessment of its current location coverage; it also follows the brand’s opening of a delivery kitchen at Karma Kitchen’s Bermondsey site in March 2023.
