About Us

About Us

The team behind Tiny Dinners, a personal chef service business, brings Chef Shack to Grand Rapids, MI in the heart of the East Hills neighborhood. Owners Wes and Sarah, aim to fill a void they see in the shared kitchen and event space community. While incubator kitchens, commercial kitchens, and event spaces are easy to find in the city, what is harder to seek out is a storefront a small business can rent out to sell their goods. Chef Shack exists to bridge the gap between creating food and selling it, by making it possible to do both under the same roof.
