A bakery and commercial kitchen in Macon, Georgia is looking to take some of the pressure off busy parents during their kids’ upcoming school year.

Chefspring will offer a subscription plan where it will prepare and deliver lunches to children at local schools. Food for the lunches can be selected based on what each child likes, and there will be nutritious options.

Additionally, Chefspring will provide family meals on a subscription basis. It will be a way for families to avoid having to go out to eat at restaurants if they have busy lives. This will also benefit Chefspring by helping to keep its overhead low.

The bakery, which opens at the end of June, also supports a shared commercial kitchen space. Entrepreneurs can make baked goods or other items to sell in Chefspring or at other retailers. So far, the kitchen has three members: Le Elegant Macaron Co., Three Brothers Cheesecakes, and Savory Smoker.

Chefspring’s commercial kitchen space allows these entrepreneurs who don’t yet have the capital to acquire their own space the opportunity to make and sell food items. “It's like an incubator. The whole idea is that they grow to the point that they eventually open their own kitchen,” says Chefspring owner Lauren Hightower.
