BASS GROUP ANNOUNCES exciting NEW Incubator Concept at MESA, A Col- laborative Kitchen-Ready, Set, Prep’d


New Albany, In- A new incubator has signed on at MESA, A Collaborative Kitchen. Peggy and Andrew Garbe have been working on their Ready, Set, Prep’d concept for months and are ready to take it to the next level.

Ready Set Prep’d is a weekly meal prep service designed to provide busy individ- uals with access to healthy, pre-portioned and thoughtfully curated meals that fit into a number of diets and lifestyles. Meals are available for pickup at the begin- ning of each week.

Each Ready Set Prep’d meal comes fully cooked and utilizes fresh ingredients that are locally-sourced when possible. Meals include calorie counts, macronutrient values and ingredient list – to give you an in-depth view of what you’re eating and the nutritional value of your meal.

With a weekly rotating menu, competitive pricing and quality ingredients, healthy eating is made fun, convenient and accessible.



Peggy Garbe is a local chef who has served in kitchens such as Louisville favorite Jack Fry’s, as well as downtown’s Milkwood Restaurant. She began her culinary career at Sullivan University’s well-known Culinary Arts program. In late 2016, Garbe left the restaurant industry to spend more time with her family and to gain a business degree from Indiana University.

As an avid member of Four Barrel Crossfit in New Albany, Garbe realized a need to create meals that support her healthy lifestyle, but that are also unique and flavor-

ful – helping to stick to healthy eating and break the misconception that healthy

food is boring or bland. With encouragement from close friends, the Four Barrel community and her coworkers, she explored meal prepping for others and redis- covered her passion for food.

Garbe believes that convenient, healthy, flavorful food should be an accessible option for everyone. Ready Set Prep’d is ready to be that option.
