Below is a visual overview of a Food Corridor account for a food business. This provides a taste of the functionality and information available for a food business that is renting space from a kitchen.
A food business can view all their submitted, approved, declined, and cancelled space and equipment bookings from their Bookings tab. They can view, edit, and cancel their bookings from this page. If you have a pre-paid monthly plan, the My Bookings section will show you the number of hours you have booked out of the total number of hours you have paid for in the kitchen.
The food business's unique 4 digit PIN is also found on the Bookings tab. You can use it to sign in/out if the kitchen by clicking on the 'Sign-In Sheet'.
A food business can view their kitchen's spaces and create new bookings from the Calendars tab. They can click on the Daily View to see a snapshot of what space and equipment is booked on any given day.
A food business can view their current and past charges from their Billing tab, so they always know what they are paying the kitchen. Monthly charges are automatically billed once a month. Any pending payments are also viewable from this page.
Documents: Food Business Documents
A food business can upload required documents and enter the expiration dates, to let the system notify them when a document is set to expire. They can do this from their Documents tab. The system will notify the food business (and the kitchen) 45 days, 14 days, and 3 days before a document's expiration. A food business can also add private documents and shared documents (documents between the client and the kitchen) if they wish.
Documents: Kitchen Documents
Also from their Documents tab, a food business can see their kitchen's common documents (general kitchen information, policies, etc.) that the kitchen has uploaded.
From their Reports tab, a food business can view automatically generated reports that are helpful for their business and record keeping. These reports include information on their bookings, invoices, and sign-in/out data.
A food business can view and message fellow clients in their kitchen from their Community tab. This helps them connect with other clients, learn more about them, and also refer potential customers to their business.
From the gear icon, a food business can view the following:
Business Profile. View your business name, upload a log, add a description, select your category of business, choose which product(s) you sell/make, select a business stage, input your social media channels, view/update your public contact information, and, most importantly, select your home kitchen.
