A local meal prep service focused on healthy, convenient food has opened their first location they can call their own. 

Chef Peggy Garbe runs Ready Set Prep’d, a meal prep business offering ready-to-eat meals. 

For the past two years Garbe has operated the business out of MESA, A Collaborative Kitchen in downtown New Albany. 

Business is good and the need for a bigger kitchen became obvious.

On Aug. 21, she opened a brick and mortar location at 1222 State St.

Having their own space allows Garbe to offer more to the community. 

Ready Set Prep’d is now offers made-to-order lunches Wednesday through Sunday.

The lunches can be ready in less than five minutes, and options include salads, wraps and protein bowls.

The space includes a drive-thru, and Ready Set Prep’d also offers delivery within a 15-mile radius of New Albany.

Ready Set Prep’d is open Wednesday and Thursday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
