We welcome large corporation and out of town film companies that are looking to use The Cook’s Nook’s production space as a short-term Central Preparation Facility (CPF) to support your Austin event.

At The Cook’s Nook, you’ll be able to:
– Receive food product or service items for your event
– store dry or cold prepared event food product
– use a scheduled food prep area
– have secure, 24/7 access

To make food at a CFP on a limited basis for public consumption, the City of Austin / Travis County requires:
Temporary Food Event Application (Permit to Operate)

Visiting food companies will have a security deposit on file and a certificate of insurance showing a minimum of $1,000,000 commercial general liability insurance with CHISOS STAR LLC listed as additional insured. The visiting company must maintain such policy for the entirety of the limited event.

For pricing and additional details, contact us. For information on the City’s Health Department requirements, have a look at their site or have a review of the City of Austin Temporary Events Requirements_Guide.
