Ok, so technically I know that you aren't suppose to be baking things in your house that are for "sale" in Texas...but you can have an agreement with a restaurant or church or where ever they have a food license right? And then still transport the baked goods to the reception site?

Anybody know of any places that I could possibly get an agreement with them in the Pearland/extreme Southeast houston (45 south)?

You are correct, the state wants your baking done in a commercial kitchen. So yes, if the church has a kitchen that has been approved as commercial, your covered.

I have heard that some people converting a detached building into a commercial kitchen on there house.

As far as property goes, I can't help there. I am in Kingsville, TX.
I would try the local churches and see if you could trade some volunteer time and maybe help with something like a bake sale.

Good luck with your business, I hope you find what you are looking for.

If you haven't done so, check out the business forum on this site for people who can probably answer your question better than I.

Also, here are some links you can browse related to our states laws:

Health & Safety Code (Check around Title 6)

edit: added links

Hi! I'm right on the Pearland border....just outside of Green Tee.

Just thought I'd say hello!
