Frequently Asked Questions

What is Nimbus?

Nimbus is an innovative commercial kitchen that empowers food businesses to grow and thrive through hourly kitchen rentals, customizable long-term kitchen leases, and engaging community spaces with event programming. We remove the extensive regulatory hurdles and capital investment required in a new kitchen build-out, enabling food businesses to succeed at all business stages.

Nimbus operates four key business segments:

  1. Hourly Kitchens: hourly kitchen rentals are available on-demand and have low monthly minimums, providing flexibility and scalability for new, growing, or seasonal businesses.
  2. Long-Term Kitchens: long-term kitchens, available on 6-month or annual terms, allow established concepts to test a new market or scale with limited upfront capital.
  3. Studio + Event Space: event spaces and adjacent studio kitchens give our members and the broader community room to create content, host a tasting, or throw a dinner party.
  4. Storage: on-site dry, cold, and frozen storage gives members and outside businesses the storage space needed to support their businesses.
Where is Nimbus located?

Nimbus currently has two locations: we opened our first kitchen on the Lower East Side in early 2021, and we launched our flagship location in Downtown Brooklyn in mid-2022. While New York City is our home, our sights are set nationwide: we plan to have kitchens in every major city in the United States by 2030.

What are Nimbus’s operating hours?

Nimbus is open from 6am-10pm, 7 days a week. We are only closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, and Independence Day.
