What part of Tenessee are they in? A home bakery in Tennessee is legal but if it is in a building seperate from their home, it will fall under the same guidelines as a commercial kitchen. It is also legal in Tennessee to use your own home kitchen but you must have a permit and be inspected by the state. Individual counties may also require inspections from the local health department. Tell them to contact the TN Dept of Agriculture about the Domestic Kitchen program and then their local health department.

In Davidson County you have to have a separate kitchen and you can not have any clients come to your home. I live in Davidson County and called recently to see what are the requirements. Each county is different so you need to call for the county you are planning on having the home business.
