If you enjoy cooking a wide variety of tasty vegan dishes, but have a kitchen the size of a shoebox, then you’ll understand the inspiration behind Martha Arango and Daniela Ochoa’s new venture. The mom and daughter duo opened My Vgan Kitchen, a safe space for professional plant-based culinarians to create, without fear and with plenty of open space.
Arango told Miami New Times, “We were inspired by seeing many people wanting to start their business and there not being a 100 percent vegan commercial kitchen nearby. We already manufacture vegan food products and have space for other people. Why not help the community grow by having more products available?”
The kitchen has rates that run from $12 to $18 an hour, depending upon needs. It’s a space meant for caterers, entrepreneurs, chefs, and restaurants.
They added, “We are opened to helping everyone interested, yet our target is to help people that have a great product but have no idea how to begin their business.” They also have experience helping vegan companies to launch. “We provide support with all the license procedures, offer in-house label printing, and product delivery in our commercial vehicle,” Arango adds.
They have their own brands that operate out of their vegan commercial kitchen, including Productos las Delicias, a line of Colombian arepas, Nutri D’Light, and healthy products like Fit arepas, lentil burger patties, and My Vgan, which includes ‘cheesy’ arepas, pastelitos, tequenos, and more.
Ochoa also has her own brands that operate out of the kitchen, including Productos las Delicias, a line of Colombian arepas; Nutri D’Light, which manufactures healthy products such as Fit arepas and vegan lentil burgers; and My Vgan, which creates veganized products such as “cheez” arepas, pastelitos, tequeños, and vegan cheeses.
Their website states, “With over 20 years of experience in the food manufacturing industry, we provide an all vegan commercial space for you to prepare your products with peace of mind.”
The kitchen is located at 2954 W. 84th St., Hialeah, Florida.
