For those who hardly cook but own a modern well-equipped kitchen, you can now monetise your kitchen by renting it out.
The kitchen sharing concept has been around in Malaysia since the last few years. Typically catering to private chefs or small-scale online food vendors, these kitchens are usually fully equipped with state-of-the-art kitchen equipment and premium baking production equipment in commercial premises.
Activer Kitchens, a new online marketplace platform, is among the first to connect homeowners who has a good kitchen in a landed property with the public. Target renters include restaurant owners looking to expand their business, or for people looking to start out their business in a specific location.
Targetted to go live latest by January 2022, Activer Kitchens is currently having a promotion for any kitchen listed on their platform.
Here are some answers to the frequently asked questions:
1.Will my kitchen be used for delivery and dining-in services?
No, people renting your kitchen will only be engaging in delivery services; no customers will patronise your place for dine-in.
2.Are there any charges to list my kitchen on the platform?
No, there are no charges to list your kitchen on our platform.
3.Are there any additional charges when my kitchen gets rented?
As of now since we are still in the pre-launch stage, for the first 100 kitchens that are listed on our platform, no commission charges will be charged when your kitchen gets rented.
4.How is listing my home kitchen on the platform profitable to me?
Depending on the location, size of the kitchen, and amenities provided, you would be able to rent your kitchen from RM100 – RM150 per day. This would bring you revenue of RM3,000 to RM4,500 a month. Compared to Airbnb, people renting from you mostly will be committing to long-term tenures so once you have secured a tenancy, you would not have to go through the same process again of looking for someone else to rent from you.
