LEXINGTON, Ky. — Lane Communications Group, publisher of The Lane Report and Kentucky Business Online (Kybiz.com), has purchased Prep Magazine, a business-to-business magazine serving the foodservice industry.
 
Prep Magazine, founded in 2004, is published in Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee. The quarterly magazine is distributed to 30,000 food-industry professionals. 
 
"Our editors are pleased to add Prep Magazine to our portfolio of statewide and regional business magazines. We believe that the publication fits well with our company's mission of being Kentucky's business news source," said publisher Ed Lane. 
 
"Foodservice is a $7.4 billion industry in Kentucky. Our state has a longstanding tradition of Southern hospitality and cooking," Lane added.
 
Lane formerly served as the national director of real estate for the Long John Silver's restaurant chain. Lane Consultants, his commercial real-estate services firm, assists restaurateurs and national food-service chains in the acquisition of new restaurant locations.
 
Lane also is a past chair of the Kentucky Chapter of the American Institute of Wine and Food. 
 
Dan Weldy, the founder of Prep Magazine, is joining Lane Communications Group as associate publisher, managing the business and editorial aspects of Prep Magazine. Weldy also will contribute to Lane Communications' other business publications.
 
Lane Communications Group plans to continue to publish Prep Magazine quarterly, with the first issue being delivered in June.
