Syzl’s Online Marketplace for Kitchen Space Has Arrived in the GTA
Syzl is making access to certified kitchen space easy and hassle-free through their online marketplace app while helping kitchen operators and restaurants offset lost revenue when their facilities are not being used.
Backed by Restaurants Canada, Syzl has launched in the GTA with 35 kitchens and over 400 chefs and independent food makers signed up to the platform and ready to book kitchen space.
“Creating food for others is an incredible experience that requires the necessary financing, equipment and space to bring it to life,” said Romain Avril, Syzl advisor, Michelin Star trained Chef and owner Romain Avril Inc. “Syzl helps open the doors for so many chefs and food creators who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to do so, while benefiting restaurants who aren’t open 24-7.”
Kitchen operators can list their space on the Syzl app with availability, equipment lists, and booking rates. Food makers can then search for kitchens by location, availability, and equipment. All kitchens are health and safety certified, and all users have verified food-handling certificates, are insured, and have had background checks.
“With the rise of gig economy services and ghost kitchens, we saw a gap in short-term kitchen booking for food industry professionals that hinders local innovation,” said Azrah Manji-Savin, co-founder and CEO of Syzl. “Finding an on-demand or short term professional, certified kitchen is a complicated process for chefs or food entrepreneurs, while for kitchen operators, closed hours, delays and empty stations are lost opportunities for revenue. We have partnered with kitchens and food makers to close that gap.”
Syzl’s next explansion is planned for Calgary and Montreal later this year.
