Being that there are so many different rules and regulations for different states and counties, I figured that maybe anyone in New York/Nassau County had some tips on opening a business out of my home. And what steps to take first.
Thank you in advance!!
I am approved to bake from home cakes, cupcakes, muffins, cookies and pies. but I got approved through the Newyork state agriculture markets, that is where my HD sent me through, I can make birthday cakes, but not wedding cakes, or at least he says not to advertise it as wedding cakes, I live upstate though, and also I had to go through the code enforcement, and had to be approved by the board.(that is for your county). so now I am working on purchasing my Insurance, and applying for my sales tax certificate. I got approved just last week. or should I say Inspected and license.
Congrats Unique!! and good luck in your business.
Lilreese- hope you find out the info you need.
Thank You so very much rosiecast
Anyone else have any insight of NY specifically??
Hi there--sorry I just saw this post today....I'm in nassau county too--Long Island is a pain in the butt--the only way anyone can get a home kitchen is if you're selling a product wholesale--like selling cheesecakes to a restaurant. We can't sell directly to customers...it sucks and makes no sense. And it's so frustrating to know that people in other states can do it, but we can't...
I haven't been able to find any commercial kitchens to rent either...it's very discouraging....
