What our users say
We have the pleasure to work with everyone from ambitious startups to industry giants across the UK.
We have worked with Oya for a few years now and they are very professional.Ashley, Tom and the team have provided some good tenants for our pub and are pragmatic about making things work for both sides.
I was introduced to Tom at Oya via our Deliveroo account manager during lock down. Oya is great match making partner to work with in order to grow in the hospitality sector.
I really enjoy working with the team at Oya and value our partnership. They have worked hard to understand our business and are very proactive about finding solutions that will work for everyone.
Thinking about licencing your kitchen? Take a look at our FAQ's for more information.
What documents do I need to supply?
We’ll need a copy of your current insurance policy and any other relevant health and safety certificates.
What’s a Licence to Occupy?
A Licence to Occupy is the agreement between you (the kitchen) and the food vendor. It is a legal contract that outlines the terms of engagement and what is expected from both parties.
What happens if my kitchen or equipment gets damaged?
1) As long as all the equipment is serviced, checked and in working order when the licence period starts, the food vendor is responsible for the maintenance or repair of such equipment after 30 days. For the first 30 days, you’re responsible. 2) We also hold a damage and cleaning deposit in case of any discrepancies once the licence period has ended and the food vendor has checked out.
Who’s responsible for utilities?
Gas, Electricity, Water, WIFI, Waste Removal and Pest Control are agreed by the Host. If you want to charge utilities separately, a separate kitchen metre is recommended, please let us know during kitchen sign up.
How much money could I make?
The licence fee prices are determined by the size, equipment, condition and location of the kitchen. Monthly kitchen licences are typically between £1,000 and £5,000 per month. Don’t forget, if you have space for dine in customers you may receive a percentage of the dine in sales too.
Can I licence part of my kitchen?
Yes! The ability to do a shared licence is dependant on the size of the kitchen, your working hours and space available.
