For those of you who own your own bakeries (not home-based), would you be willing to share how long it took you before you started to make a profit from your business? I'm toying with the idea of opening my own place. I've been stockpiling equipment now for almost two years (gotta love craigslist). I have a commercial fridge, a 20qt hobart, a deluxe oven and lots of s/s tables and other supplies. When/If I do find a space all I will need to purchase is my sinks and storage shelves. I will not be taking out any bank loans as I have been saving for this for a very long time. I've written a business plan and I'm just waiting to find the right location. I'm hoping to turn a profit within 6 months...is that unrealistic?
