The chart is coded by color:
Green = YES, this state allows/permits/licenses home kitchens for cake/baking businesses
Orange = NO, this state will not allow you to have a food business in your home kitchen
Yellow = VARIES BY COUNTY, check with the county in which you reside
White = No information yet
For the purposes of this chart and thread, a "home kitchen" is your own home kitchen where you prepare food for yourself and your family, not a separate kitchen on your property.
Of course, this is not a legal document, and you should always check with your local Health Department or Agriculture Department before beginning any type of food business.
To keep this thread from getting too large and unwieldy, please only add to it if you have a correction, or new information on a state. Please start a new thread to ask a specific question about a state's regulations, as that way it will be more likely to be seen by someone who can help.
