Prep ATX, a new multipurpose commercial kitchen and food manufacturing facility, is set to open at 1300 E. Anderson Lane, Austin, in April. The 55,000-square-foot facility will serve as a hub for caterers, bakers and prepared meal companies as well as a "ghost kitchen" for pickup and delivery-only restaurants. With 42 private kitchens, 16 shared kitchens and space for 16 food trucks available, representatives for Prep ATX say it will be the largest facility of its kind in Texas.
“With an endless supply of culinary innovators, entrepreneurial spirit, and strong community support, Austin was a natural choice for our first expansion,” said Drew Barrett, the director of Prep, which opened its first facility in Atlanta in 2014.
