More Than Just a Commercial Shared Kitchen

PREP Cook | Create | Connect ® opened in June 2014 with one goal in mind – help build and support small food businesses in Metro Atlanta, by creating a Small Food Business Accelerator to help local entrepreneurs – Bakers, Retail & Wholesale Specialty Food Producers, Food Trucks, Prepared Meals Companies and Caterers – organically scale their businesses without negatively impacting their bottom line.

The PREP facility consists of:

  • A fully certified, 10-station, shared-use, commercial kitchen for specialty food producers
  • Four dedicated Shared Kitchen spaces for USDA meat producers and gluten free product production, and members who require privacy
  • 36 fully certified, dedicated, base of operations for food truck operators
  • A full service onsite wholesale food and supply procurement operation which saves members time and money
  • Studio Production Kitchen
  • Work Stations/Conference Room
  • 35 permit-ready and affordable dedicated production spaces


In lieu of traditional contracts, PREP offers membership packages to the Shared-Use Commercial Kitchen, Studio Production Kitchen and the Food Truck Bases-of-Operation, and the Dedicated Production Spaces. Each membership package varies in price, initiation fee and applicable amenity offerings.
