The language studio will open its new offices in Madrid, providing hub services including dubbing, subtitling and accessibility, and media services.

The Kitchen will be opening its first European media “hub” and the new Kitchen Spain, this Friday, October 13, 2023 with an invitation-only Open House, taking place just prior to this year’s Mipcom conclave.

Located in central Madrid, at Calle Zabaleta 15, Bajo Local (28002), executives and staff from the company’s Miami and Spain headquarters will be in attendance.

Five years ago, the Emmy Award-Winning language studio introduced the company’s first European sales office, with Madrid playing a vital part in the location of what The Kitchen wanted to accomplish. With studios located throughout Europe and the Middle East, Madrid has proven to be the perfect centralized location to house their European operation.

The Kitchen’s headquarters, in Miami, will continue to provide “hub” services for its US and Latin American studios.

Max Wynen, VP Global Operations, is responsible for the buildout of The Kitchen Spain and for the day-to-day activities for all of The Kitchen’s studio locations. Alexis Cardenas continues to helm the company’s European Sales offices, as VP International Sales.

“Our team collectively fell in love with this location,” Max Wynen said. “It was a production-based studio in the past, and therefore it already had a lot of what we were looking for. We’ll be opening our doors with two dubbing suites and three mixing rooms and will be ready for a TPN assessment from the on-set. The beauty of this facility is the tremendous room it has for growth. As needed, we can probably add at least ten additional dub/mix rooms and expand easily.”
