"Enda Hughes went above and beyond the duties of a landlord and was committed to helping our business flourish. He consulted to our business on numerous occasions and provided valuable feedback and advice. He always endeavoured to negotiate outcomes that met both of our needs. His support and input was incredibly valuable."

"Enda has acted as my landlord since September 2014 when I started leasing a commercial kitchen at his Balgowlah Heights premises. From the outset of our negotiations and business dealings Enda has been upfront, easy to deal with and quick to respond to any queries. He keeps a close eye on the premises and any issues that arise are resolved promptly. Being new to the food industry it has been reassuring to deal with someone in such a straightforward manner! The space was handed over to me in great condition, and has been maintained to a high standard – it has saved me a lot of time, effort and money being able to move straight into a space that was ready-to-go. Dealing with Enda and leasing one of his kitchens has been a great leap forward for me in my business."

"I want to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Enda for providing a great service. Moving into a brand new kitchen that was functional and well equipped made it far easier for our business to get up and running. Enda was quick to reply throughout the negotiation period and was always fair and measured making the contractual process easy. Enda’s a straight shooter and from the outset I found him to be completely trust worthy. It’s clear that he has vast experience working in and designing kitchens which is demonstrated by his ongoing building management. General tasks on his end are always completed on time, to exacting standards and with minimal fuss. Furthermore he is genuinely a nice guy and is always on hand to offer help and support as needed. I have no hesitation in recommending Enda and am sure that we’ll continue doing business well into the future."

"I have known Enda Hughes of leaseakitchen.com for quite a number of years when a business I was involved with was talking to him regarding some contract manufacturing we were going to commence. My new business venture (along with two partners) Kitchen Green, leases a kitchen from leaseakitchen.com, in a factory unit in Alexandria that Enda Hughes has converted and designed to comply with HACCP specifications. Enda realised the need for commercial kitchens of this nature, allowing start up businesses to operate without the renovation costs usually associated with HACCP setup. Enda truly believes that start up businesses need a bit of help – having been there himself in the industry. Because of his experience, he is more than happy to help out with introductions and contacts he has made over his many years; this is a very admirable quality. His generosity with his time is also very much appreciated. Enda manages the factory unit and is always available by phone or email when issues arise and deals with all matters in a quick and timely manner. "
"We first met with leaseakitchen.com back in 2011 when looking for a commercial kitchen on the Northern Beaches. It is rare to find a company that are so easy to deal with while offering the highest levels of professionalism, industry knowledge and down to earth advice. Our commercial kitchen is fitted out to the highest possible standard and meets all current industry standards. A great space, well thought through and extremely enjoyable to work in! We have also contracted leaseakitchen.com for their expertise in several consultancy sessions which have contributed to further success and expansion of our catering company. Thank you indeed."
"I contacted leaseakitchen.com in search for kitchen space to launch Maggie McKeever’s, our home meal replacement business. I would like to thank Enda Hughes in particular, as what I received was far more. I had never worked in the food industry before this venture. I was very happy with what was Enda’s approach ensuring I knew what I was doing before allowing me to sign the lease. As he said, “I want you to succeed and if I can help I will”. From my experience, this attribute is rare amongst landlord’s particularly commercial landlords and I believe this is what sets Enda Hughes apart from others. The way in which Enda conducts business is extremely professional, efficient and fair. This standard, as a tenant, I felt helped us raise our services and better our business. Thank you again."

"I rented a commercial kitchen from Enda Hughes of leaseakitchen.com for 18 months. Enda was a professional, fair and reasonable landlord whom I enjoyed dealing with. Enda was keen to make sure all things were running smoothly for his tenants and whenever any issues arose either between tenants or in relation to the building and I emailed Enda, I received responses from him often within minutes, and definitely within the day. Enda then quickly worked to resolve any problems. I felt like Enda was working with me to make sure my commercial kitchen experience with him was a good one. Enda assisted me by reminding me when various services were due on my cool room and exhaust hood and worked to negotiate the best service rates through service providers by organising for all tenants in the building to obtain services through one provider. I was new to the world of food/catering and appreciated his support. Enda was willing to give advice, was keen to assist me to succeed in my business and it was so nice to see him excited for me when he heard that things for my business were going well. It was a pleasure to have him as a landlord."

Enda’s professionalism and Good Character is truly remarkable, making any dealings smooth and up front and worry free."

"After a connection online with leaseakitchen.com.au we knew we had found a contact that would be fruitful for the growth of our business. Initially we leased a kitchen from Enda, he listened to our brief, was sharp in his communications, and delivered a timely result. In the background we had a larger, more detailed project for which we engaged Enda as a consultant. Enda worked his contacts and once again, came to us with results that fit the brief, and on time (which we didn’t have on our side!) I would highly recommend Enda for his honesty, integrity and knowledge of the hospitality industry to find you exactly what you are looking for. And he comes with a powerful network, and good humour to boot! I have no doubt we will see Enda again in our future, and welcome anyone to contact me for a reference."
"In the years since first meeting Enda Hughes in 2005, I have always been impressed by his dynamic approach to the business of the food industry and his commitment to food safety. I audited Enda’s own HACCP accredited kitchen and have also audited many of his tenant’s HACCP programs. Enda is well aware of HACCP requirements and works to ensure that the fit-out of kitchens will meet HACCP requirements. It is unusual to find someone with Enda’s solid practical knowledge of HACCP operations, commercial kitchen operations and fit-outs."
