Moving from a home kitchen into a shared, commercial kitchen space can seem like a big step — but it could be the difference between your business growing or staying stagnant. If you've been thinking about making the jump to a shared kitchen, this is for you.

Maybe you're ready to scale up your production, you want to start selling to local vendors like coffee shops or specialty stores, or you just want to sell something that isn't permitted under your cottage food laws.

We invited Katy Mabee of PREP ATX, an Austin-based shared kitchen space, to discuss the pros and cons of working in a commercial kitchen. In this video, you'll learn: 

  • Who should make the switch to a commercial kitchen
  • How much a commercial kitchen could cost you
  • What you need to start using a commercial kitchen

... and so much more.
