Trish Wesevich, owner
Since its inception in 2012, over 300 food startups, established food businesses and food trucks have used this commercial, shared-use kitchen located in South Austin. Many mobile food trucks use the facility as their Central Preparation Facility and share opportunities in this culinary networking community. "Its been fun for me to assist many aspiring entrepreneurs who dream of starting their own food and beverage companies. So many of them are creative and enthusiastic about the culinary culture in Austin and beyond. Watching them grow and learn how to be successful business people is what motivates me to provide a friendly and inviting space for them to work in and thrive." - Trish Wesevich
