Hi there .. I have been decorating cakes about a year now.. for friends and family.. I would like to start my own business out of my home but can't find anywhere online about what i need to start one.. I know i need to be food safe certified and i am doing that on nov 18th but what else do i need anyone have a list for me?? Any info would be greatly appreicated..
Start with your city gov. Then county, and state HD, and AG.
You will need to call the Department of Agriculture.. they deal with the food service licenses in MA. It's different in different towns, so I'd check into that before taking the food safe course just in case you can't have a licensed home kitchen (if that's what you are going for).
