I wanted to gush at the only place that will understand.
Serendipity has played a part in my life this weekend. Together with a financial windfall and a store with plumbing and electrical already in the building has fallen in my lap. So I am opening a cake/cupcake shop! It'll be open 90 days after I sign the lease.
I'll be busy for sure, but it will be a good thing. I have learned so much from reading and listening on all the conversations here that I was able to ask all the right questions and make all the right phone calls to all the right departments (something I am still doing, boy are there a lot of departments to contact!).
That's wonderful. I'm so happy for you. Best of luck.
Yay! I'm so excited for you Linda!
Congrats!!! I am going through the same process right now and am opening a cake/cupcake place as well, soo exciting but so many hoops and loops to jump through!!! Good luck with everything!
Oh by the way can I ask what kind of place was there before? Was it a bakery before you got the place? Just curious as the place I am renting was a hair salon before so the plumbing and electric was there but I still need to put to some of that work into the place along with a little bit of construction (just putting a wall up) but so many inspectors and permits to go through UGH!!! Keep us updated
So awesome for you!!! Congrats
Thank you everybody.
Before me the place was where children's parties were held. There was a small kitchen in the back that has all the right plumbing and one electrical outlet I need. I'll be using 2 ovens, so I'll need to add another outlet.
The mop sink, mop bucket/mop and vegetable sink are still there. I am negotiating with the previous owner to see if I can buy them off of her. It would make my life and her life a lot easier.
Congratulations and happy caking!
Congratulations and good luck!
Double congratulations, both on the unexpected cash and finding a great location! Good luck
That's awesome! Congratulations. Keep us updated on your progress....you're living a dream that many of us have.
I wish you much success!!!!
I'm about to do the same thing! Best of luck to both of us and to all women who take risks and don't settle.
I opened my bakery in Jan of 2010 and have had fun. I hope both of you enjoy it as much as I do. Good Luck and Congratulations
