I got in contact with 4 different churches that would all be willing to hear my proposal about renting their kitchen space. Im asking for advise on what to put into the letter.
Im not sure how my business ill project, and unsure how much time ill actually need in the kitchen per week, ya know? How would i say that in the letter? I think i would like to rent on a need to basis, rather than a monthly charge. I read elsewhere that anywhere from $10-15 is the average hourly charge, is that true?
hmm... im just nevous and really hoping to nail these becuase I really want to get my foot in the door and finally start doing this for real.
Please help with any advice. Thank you!
You might want to rephrase your title to this post.....put something in there about looking for pricing vs. a proposal. Good luck, I wish I were more help.
Well the pricing is just a part of the advice i was looking for. Im unsure of the construction of the letter. Should i even talk about price? Or should I mention the benifits of having some cake decorator renting their kitchen? those sort of things?
Its times like these i thank god I stumbled across this website.. its great that we can share are experiences.
I don't think you need to talk about pricing I believe what they want to know is how and why you need to use their space, how often that sort of thing. You will need your own insurance if you hadn't thought of it.
The problem I ran into when exploring this route was that since most church kitchens do not sell food to the public, they are usually not up to the standards you will need them to be in order to be sell out of them. You might save yourself some trouble by looking into this first.
Find out what a kitchen needs (how many sinks, what kind, etc..to pass inspection in your area. Then take a peek at and see if these churches meet those standards.
The kitchen standards for serving food to a congregation are different than they are for selling food to the public.
