I am trying to find the regulations for opening a cake shop in KY. I have talked to our local Health inspector and he couldn't find in any regulations in our area for a bakery/cake shop. I live in eastern ky, we are a very rural area.
He gave me some regulations for a restaurant and they were very stringent for instance a 500 gallon grease trap connected to the septic tank.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has had any experience with this or if any one knows where I can find the correct regulations.
I know this sounds kinda obvious but have you tried contacting a local bakery and seeing what they have to say?
Maybe even ask a manager at a Krogers or Walmart for some numbers since they have frequently have food/bakery areas.
We don't have any acutual bakeries in our area. We do have a Walmart and another large grocery store, but they are both on the city sewer system and don't have to deal with the septic tank scenario. Thanks for your thoughts.
well poo! HHHHHMMMMM, I'll ask a friend of mine at health dept. and see ehat she can come up with. What county do you live in specifically, in case there are separate issues there.
Ok well I had, all this information to tell you then my computer shut down unexpectedly. LOL any of you who want to know the steps you need to take to become licensed in KY. Then PM me and we can talk.
I know this is regarding a home based business rather than a cake shop, but I found this link: http://www.lrc.state.ky.us/KRS/217-00/136.PDF . Does anyone know if it is accurate? And does it only apply to those on a farm? Just wondered if anyone has any insight. Thanks.
Edited: OH NEVERMIND! I dug a little deeper and found that you have to have grown the predominant ingredient on your farm. And I don't think there's any way I can pretend that I'm growing Duncan Hines cake mixes in my backyard!!!
Thanks for all the thoughts and by the way I live in Pike County KY.
I called my local health dept. in Marion co.
He said you had to have a kitchen seperate from your house. Running water, axcess to a bathroom, sink, stove, fridge, washable walls, and I don't remember what else.
He said it was basically the same as opening a McDonalds.
If anybody else has an info, let me know.
Also I have a friend who was born in Pike county. Mark Lowe, would you happen to know him ?
