I am going to be opening a cake/candy ect supply store. I will NOT sell any baked goods! I am having so much trouble coming up with a name. It's a lot harder than I thought but it is my TRUE passion so i figured... why not follow my dreams.
I want it to be fun, festive, unique and so many other things BUT i dont want it to make you think of an actual bakery.
Some words I like are
Meggsie (My nickname)
MY family really likes Meggsie's Bake Shop but MANY other people said it sounded like a bakery. So Any help would be great!
Sugar Wonders. Sugarcraft Fantasy. Sweets Little Helpers. Lol! Something like that
What else are you planning on doing besides selling baking supplies? It will be very difficult for a cake supply retailer to be profitable without relying on classes, custom cake orders, etc.
I am sorry... I should have mentioned that I will be teaching classes. One day classes @25.00 and two days classes @45.00
I already have a mini cake business with my cousin but I want to do something that doesnt have any baked goods for sale. MAYBE cake pops and cookies other than that nothing.
If I were you I would emphasize the classes, since that's probably where you will be making your money. Something like "Meggsie's Pastry School & Supplies".
Offering small impulse buys likes cake pops and cookies (and beverages) is a good bet to bump up your average profit margin, you would have to check your local health dept to see if there are any additional rules for serving food.
