          Frequently Asked Questions

What if I don't have any experience in the food industry, but I’ve always dreamed of having my own small food business?

We are here to help anyone interested in starting their own small food-related business. Come chat with us, and we'll work together to figure out the next steps for you and your business.

 

Do I need any certifications?

Yes. Food sold to the public, except for qualified items sold at a Farmers' Market, must be prepared in a certified kitchen by an individual with a valid ServSafe Manager Certification. Ripley County administers the exam once a quarter. You can sign up for testing through Hoosier Hospitality Consulting. In addition there are other locations and agencies that offer training and exams. Visit ServSafe.com for more information.

Can I take a tour?

Of course! We would be happy to schedule a tour by appointment.

 

What are your hours of operation?

As a client, you can schedule time in the kitchen to meet your schedule. Normal time blocks are during typical business hours, but we offer you the flexibility to work in the kitchen at any time, day or night, that is convenient for you.

 

What equipment do clients need to provide for themselves?

Clients are responsible for supplying their own smallwares,  including knives, pots and pans, measuring tools, containers, etc. Lockable storage cages are available for you to keep your items conveniently and safely on-site. The Galley provides commercial kitchen equipment that most businesses would need (listed above).
