The long-awaited Prep ATX opened Thursday in North Austin, housing over 50 vendors from local favorites like Easy Tiger to newcomers like Potadoughs.


Prep ATX, located at 1300 East Anderson Lane, spans over 55,000 feet, making it the largest commercial kitchen in Texas. It provides a large space for different food and beverage businesses to operate, including traditional restaurants, consumer packaged goods (CPG) brands, prepared meal service companies, ghost kitchens, caterers and food trucks.

While some businesses will use the space solely to prep and cook, the public is welcome to purchase food from certain vendors on-site. Those vendors include Brooklyn Breakfast Shop, Taste of Home Dumpling, Austin's first potato donuts shop Potadough's and KIN ZEN.

CPG businesses operating at the location will include Chop Chop, Fresh Fronks, Comal Fajita House, Thanks Danks Jerky and Kimbala Chai.

This is the second Prep location to open in the U.S. after the original Atlanta location opened in 2014. Prep in Atlanta is the largest multi-purpose kitchen campus in the Southeast U.S. Prep also offers its vendors services like co-working and mentorship programs.

"We love being able to provide kitchen space and resources for every kind of food business under the sun," said Mitchel Jaffe, PREP's CEO and co-founder. "PREP ATX's main mission is to support the Austin culinary community, giving businesses a home base to grow and flourish."
