In addition to Austin's vibrant culinary scene, the city is also known for its array of packaged food producers. In an attempt to encourage more artisanal experimentation amongst chefs in this arena, Austin has several commercial kitchens set up throughout the city. These commercial kitchens serve as culinary incubators, allowing for local chefs to test out their product ideas without incurring the cost of installing commercial kitchens in their own restaurants.
The kitchens also act as a space that can be utilized by both caterers and mobile food vendors to prepare food before traveling. Learn more about Austin's commercial kitchens here
