Home business in Australia

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I'm hoping I can get some advice from the Aussies out there; I am currently baking for family and friends but would like to expand and turn it into more of a business.

I contacted the City of Sydney council for advice and was told they won't allow a home kitchen - I would have to use commercial premises. Does anyone else bake from home? Or is the only option to hire premises?

Thanks in advance!

There are many threads on this subject, just type in Aussie in Search and you will find a whole lot of information will come up. A lot of the threads might be old but most of the information is still relevant.

Only too happy to help if I can thumbs_up.gif
I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process. It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance?

Hi bunsen and miscue...I am also in Australia, north of Sydney and am about to embark on the same journey. I know our local council are trying to promote home businesses, but am not sure how this applies as yet to cake decorating.

I will 'watch' this topic and add any info as I come across it. It would be nice if we could all have a way to keep in contact on this vast site!

Good luck!

Eve.

Hi EVe,

where abouts are you located? I grew up in central coast/newcastle area. icon_smile.gif

Do you belong to any cake decorating groups or anything? I am about to join the cake decorators guild of NSW.

Which Guild are you joining miscue? I've been a member for a few years at Golden West.

Hi Sparklepop - missed you last time!

Miscue - I am in Newcastle icon_smile.gif

I looked into joining the guild, and also the association (?) but there are no local meetings etc, so I didn't think it would be of much value just yet. There's a fair bit though, I think, that goes on in Sydney. I am focussing at the moment on soaking up the knowledge and expertise of one of the local, big suppliers of cake decorating stuff and classes in the Hunter region. I'm doing a class right now actually, which has been good for picking the brains of then local experts icon_smile.gif

Hi Evoir there is a Branch of the Guild on the Central Coast, they are quite big and there are some terrific decorators there. If you want more info pm me and I'll give you a name and phone number if you like. Believe me you will definitely soak up quite a lot at a Guild meeting and there is nothing better than talking to more cake decorators icon_lol.gif . You will meet decorators from the newest to the most experienced show winners to those that run businesses. Not sure where the Association is though.

Will definitely see you there miscue. Shirley is great she is the President and you'll definitely see me I'm Secretary so make sure you come up and introduce yourself icon_biggrin.gif .
Shirley would have filled you in on everything but if you want to know anything just ask thumbs_up.gif

Eve I just sent those details off to you, hope you can get to go icon_biggrin.gif
