I guess I can finally sleep again! I passed my Dept of Ag inspection this morning!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!! It was not as bad as I thought is was going to be.
Planning on opening the doors in 2 weeks!!! 3 years of planning is finally paying off!!!
I am a few months behind you! Still working on our building. Congratulations!!
Congratulations!!! Can't wait for my day to come!!!
Congratulations! I am still waiting on my Dept. of Agr. inspection but hopefully it will be any day now. Hopefully soon I will be celebrating like you! I hope your business does very well. Good luck!
Congratulations and good luck to you! I have been doing a little research into what all is involved in Ohio, but I don't imagine I will be opening up shop any time soon. 1) I still need a lot more practice, and 2)finances won't allow for it right now. So right now I have to be content just making cakes for family and friends.
Congratulations! I know somewhat what you have been thru.
I signed a lease on a storefront in March and have been slowly learning that older, really old buildings are not the most ideal place to begin. Plumbing has been a challenge, the inspector wants all the drains separate and to tear up the floors to be able to install. Still fighting him on that one. Not to mention the grease trap/interceptor.
And being a really old building, I am not sure if I have enough amps for the electricity. Met with another electrician yesterday. I met with one last week and he said he would get back in touch with me and never did, I called numerous times and he hasn't returned my calls. I think he bailed on me. Then I met a new one yesterday. He was an older more experienced electrician who seemed to know what he was talking about. I already have my new 'Deluxe Oven' so he studied the requirements. I think he will be able to make it work without me having to buy the farm. I do hope he calls me back today after talking the the electrical inspector on what he can do for me.
Wish me luck on these two major issues. I feel I am at the point of no return since I have all of my commercial appliances delivered. It is still really exciting watching my shop take shape. It's been a long time coming.
Congratulations! just passed mine 2 days ago also But im so busy making cakes i don't have time to move in!! LOL
Congrats and good luck!
