I know this might sound funny.... I'm a hobby baker up to this point. I've been doing research on a home business under the CFL. I've talked with the health inspector and found out that he does inspect, there is a cap on the money end, and a few other things. I'm going into this with a friend and being that we both have animals the Health inspector said he would licence a camptrailer. Sounds probably kind of weird but it would work for us. We both only want to do this part time. I'm sure your saying to yourself .... sure .... but at this point really that's all we want. We want to evaluate this for a yr and see where it leads us without all the overhead. That way if after a yr we both decide this is for the birds. we can just go camping > lol
We might decide that we are out growing it and move up to bigger and better to ... who knows.
Anyway. For those of you under the CFL can you please share if you are
1. doing it by yourself
2. have liability insur (I would think so )
3. put a name to your business or they just know who you are and call you by your name
4 put together a LLC
5 two of you have your own licence/ business but share work space and utilites
We really don't want this to be a big deal .but to pay the extra utilities, pay for ingred, make a little mad money , be legal and have fun. Our ideas might change down the road but this is where we are for now.
Any ideas, suggestions, info would be greatly apprec. I'm sure we are forgetting important things.
Yes we will have labeling, price out everything from ingred, to boxes, to utilites, time. We have a custom cake shop going in 20 miles away so even though we arent as skilled as many of you on here people like the work and the market is wide open in our area.
thanks again for any help
