i think there is a pretty detailed list on here, maybe under links, or else it will be somewhere in articles.

in the forum that talks about states that allows license of home bakers theres a spreadsheet that shows if states license home bakers or not


under WI it says no, but you may need to double check a state website or something.

Welcome to WI, Mabma80.
Each county is different. I am up in Brown County, and I can have a separate kitchen in my home. Check with the Health Dept, or check the Dept of Ag website, and it should give you what you need.

Check with your city or township first, then your county. Each city and county have different rules.

I have a seperate commerical kitchen in my home. The basic rules apply such as washable surfaces, 3 bowl sink, vents if needed, etc. I get inspected by the HD and have to pay license fees once a year.

Hi Guys from Wisconsin,
Do you guys need a seperate entrance to your kitchen,? I would like to do a kitchen in my basement but I don't have any exits, I would have to go upstairs and through main house to exit.

my first kitchen was in a renovated 10x11 bedroom! that was tight! you had to go through the house to enter that room so in my county that is okay. over the summer we built a new and bigger kitchen in the lowest level of my house that happens to have an entrance from the garage so no more going through the house.

check with your town and county.

Yep, what Crioves said. Check with your county. I didn't have to have a separate entrance. We built the house on top of the bakery so to speak. The rest of the basement isn't finished yet, and they didn't seem to mind, as long as I have doors that close it in. Round here, the dept is really great, as long as you stay on top of things.
