I am sure this has been asked before and I tried looking to see, but didn't find anything for tx. If anyone can please tell me what the rules or regulations or licensing for doing work out of home would be. Haven't really sold anything as of yet, mostly for friends and family, but... I would like to. I am sure each city might have their own requirements, but I would appreciate any information someone already has for Tx. I am in mildand/odessa btw. Thanks so much in advance!! eveyone have a sweet day!!

You can not license your home kitchen in Texas. Contact your county Health Department and they will tell you if you need to contact them, the city or the state if you are trying to open a shop.

Here's a bump because I would love to hear the answer, too!

From what I have heard and read, Texas (or at least the Dallas area) doesn't license home bakers but I'm hoping someone else has a different answer!

I think if you're going to bake from home in Texas it has to be in a space seperate from where you prepare your "family" meals and has to have a separate entrance from your home. There may even be a rule about having pets. I found good info in the forums...you may have to change the search options to find it all. Maybe it's just me but it seems like this question comes up the most for Texas...

Good luck,

Sorry, but there is not different answer in Texas. You absolutely can NOT license your home kitchen.

It seems like this question comes up all of the time and the best thing anyone can do is to contact their Health Department.
