Great food. Fast.

Locally sourced ingredients.

Prepared with pride.

We are Growing!

Bench Kitchen is excited to announce the opening of a second location in Hamilton, On.  Located at 193 King St E, we are planning for a mid- spring opening.

Our new shop is located just a few blocks from downtown, in an up and coming neighbourhood known as the International Village. Although, we are moving into a larger space and will have seating capacity, the menu and the philosophy regarding our business remains the same.

We are also aware that having two locations with the same name, which both execute a great deal of catering, could allow for confusion. In order to keep everything clear, we will be altering the operating name to help identify each location, ensuring our customers know which location they are calling or meeting at.

Grimsby will be renamed “270 bench kitchen”

Hamilton will be named “193 bench kitchen”

These numbers represent the street number of each location.

We are super excited about our growing company and being able to start feeding the good people of Hamilton our great sandwiches and enjoying the excellent customer service we are known for.
