HandCut Foods Opens New Commissary Kitchen

22 June 2015

HandCut Foods is a local catering company that creates fresh, healthy meals to K-12 schools and private events. Looking to ramp up the scale of their daily production, HandCut Foods contracted WA to design a new cutting-edge commissary kitchen. Located in a re-purposed packing and shipping warehouse off of N. Elston Avenue in Bucktown, the new 5,000 SF space features a custom stainless steel hood over the cooking and baking equipment, a new skylight, mezzanine meeting space, a large walk-in refrigerator and freezer, and dedicated food packaging room.
