That's so wonderful! Best of Luck with the new biz!!

I was wondering if you could tell me how you went about finding a space? I'm fairly new to all of this, and trying to learn all that I can! Thanks so much! icon_smile.gif

Believe me, it isn't easy finding space. I had been searching since last October with no luck. Catering companies have already sealed up any available space. I was getting really down and discouraged and was IM'ing with FlowerGirlMn one day and she mentioned the place she rents from. She talked with the owner and got a foot in the door for me! For that I will be forever grateful to her for.

I sent out numerous letters to various places..day care centers, event centers, banquet facilities..all with no response. Keep in mind, I live in a very rural area.

After getting the ok from the owner of the facility I am renting space from, I took the serv safe course and test. met with the inspector from the dept of ag, applied for licensing with them and the dept of health. Got blessings from both places and viola! I'm open!

Now it's scrambling to get all the supplies that we need, all the paper stuff like order forms, contracts, business cards, and such and find time to get my website done. My ad is in this weeks paper so I have to get busy!!
