It has taken about 2 years and lots of hours, only using extra money and refused to borrow any money but it has all paid off! Today I am an official LEGAL home based bakery in GEORGIA! Just had to share!
Congrats!!!!! I hope that I will be able to say the same someday, but for now I will continue teaching the children and baking as a hobby (which I love). Why did it take 2 years, if you don't mind me asking?
In GA you have to have a separate kitchen to operate out of. We had a room to spare but it had to have new sheet rock plus everything to make it a kitchen (New plumbing and electrical stuff) Our goal was to do the whole kitchen with just extra spare income and not take out any loans. Had we chose to take out a loan we could have finished in just a few months I'm sure, but I really didn't want to start my business out in debt....
That sounds great! I would like to do that too because MD has the same law. I had to call the zoning office and they told me that where I am located it is not allowed. Trying to find a way around it. I am happy that all went well for you.
Congratulations on your new endeavor! I hope your shop goes well and your business prospers.
Congratulations!! What county are you in??
Kpow, I am in Richmond County
Rats! I was hoping it was Cobb and that they'd changed their home kitchen policy!
Congratulations ! I hope to do the same thing one day . in the mean time Im taking lots of notes on CC and the internet..
HUGE Congratulations to you!
And we LOVE your signature slogan.
