If someone wanted to open a bakery that only served cupcakes, cakes and maybe cheesecake, with no real sit-down dining (a counter where you'd order and pay for the front) what size space would you need? Obviously, if you go too large, you're wasting money. So I'm curious what you all think.

I have been in a cupcake shop where their square footage was 450 square feet. They used every square inch of that space and it was perfect. As you know the more space you rent, the higher the rent. There is nothing wrong with small, as they say, good things come in small packages!
