Founder/CEO, The Prep Station: Commercial Kitchen and Commissary
Founder/CEO, Eat Drink Alameda: Concierge Services for Mobile Food and Events
In 2011, Under the label “Wonky”, Margaret developed, produced and packaged Kale chips and sprouted nuts. Her product was distributed to 150 stores in Northern California.
In 2017, she formed The Prep Station, commercial kitchen and commissary, located on the former Alameda Naval Base.
The objective was to create a space for food entrepreneurs. A kitchen equipped with the essentials to support a range of business models and food production needs while delivering value added services: business consultation, workforce development, supply chain management.
“The industry is constantly evolving. We follow trends and work with our vendors to find solutions and overcome hurdles. We want them to succeed.”
In 2023, The Prep Station completed steps to fulfill requirements for California Green Certification Program. All clients of The Prep Station are now eligible for green certification.
Margaret is committed to the development and growth of small businesses and the community of Alameda Point. She has pledged her time and support to both, and feels fortunate to have the opportunity to work with inspired individuals and a diverse group of people and talent.
