I currently live in GA and will be moving to WV after a bit.... Can anyone give me tips advice.... I am excited for they have a cottage food law and kinda intimidated to LOL. I know that you can't sell any cakes that require refrigeration. I have found a cream cheese flavoring extract. Has anyone tried this? Also do you have any tips for me since i have never dealt with a cottage food law state before ? Thanks so much
WV doesn't have CFL and in most areas, the requirements are close to FDA regs, making it one of the most expensive areas to start a cake business. The code in my area and surrounding areas are the exact same as a restaurant... drains in floors, grease trap, etc. Zoning laws are strict. You have to go through the planning commission and engineering dept before HD even takes a look at what you are doing.
I don't know anything about the counties in the poorer coal mining areas in the middle of the state. They may have more flexibility.
