LET US HELP YOU LAUNCH AND GROW

PREP’s facility and amenities have all been custom designed as a culinary haven to meet the needs of all types of food companies and artisans – specialty food producers, consumer packaged goods (CPG), bakers, caterers, mobile food operators/food trucks, prepared meals companies, central commissaries, ghost restaurants, pre-opening restaurant menu creation, and movie set catering companies.

Procurement 

Bulk buying power, no order minimums, delivered 5 days a week. One of the biggest challenges faced by small food businesses is finding locally sourced and bulk goods to produce their products and recipes – at a reasonable price. PREP offers centralized purchasing and distribution services for food and supplies through its partnership with Gordon Food Service – helping save time and money. Procurement orders are received and stored by PREP’s Procurement team.
