Thanks for your help!

by Jill C.

With your assistance, I think I am finally ready to do this!! Thank you so much for your help!

Thanks for your help!


Hi Allyson, I love what you are doing here. I have been selling things here and there for a while. Was just getting ready to take things to the next level when most everything shut down. I am a Realtor and baking is my side gig. Something I have always loved, must me the Italian blood. Thanks for what you are doing, it has been a great help to me!!

For as long as I can remember I have dreamed of owning my own bakery.

When most little girls were dreaming of becoming star athletes or riding horses, I was planning out a picture-perfect little bakery in a storybook town.

But I didn’t do anything to start that bakery for many, many years. I kept the dream in my head until 15 years into my career as a baker I finally decided to DO IT! 

15 years ago I was overwhelmed and confused as I tried to start my home based baking business. I fumbled my way through the rules and regulations and unknowingly, broke many of them along the way.  

In the early days, I made several mistakes, but with lots of persistence, I managed to grow my home based business into a thriving store earning multiple six figure sales within my first year.

Since then I have gone on to open four more retail bakeries, with three of them operating simultaneously. 

When it comes to understanding the journey that you are about to embark on, I wholeheartedly do!

I never would have gotten to where I am today if I had not opened my home-based bakery.

Imagine . . .

where you will be one year from now

There has never been a better time to start a home-based baking business! The demand for locally produced products is HUGE, and buyers are eager to spend their money in a meaningful way: a way that benefits small business owners and lets the money stays within their own community. 

If you don't open a home-based bakery in your town, someone else will!

Here’s why you may be struggling to launch your legal baking business

(and how to guarantee your business is set for success)


Using Facebook groups to find answers

No matter how many searches you do, if you post your question in a group of random people, you’ll get random results that may not be applicable in your state. Searching for answers on Facebook groups is a recipe for unreliable information. 


Not understanding which foods are prohibited

Maybe you've heard that you can't even use your favorite recipes because of prohibited ingredients so you throw in the towel altogether. You need to learn which foods are prohibited, and how to develop a menu that works to avoid breaking the law and being charged expensive fines or shut down permanently.


Not getting the proper permits and licenses

You may try selling first to see if you like it but not fully prepare yourself to learn the full extent of the cottage foods laws or…you may not like what is required of you (like the rules for how your kitchen must be structured) and inspectors permanently taking away your permits.


Not understanding the labeling requirements for your package goods

You may have done some research on your own and quit trying to open your bakery because the labeling requirements are complicated in some states or you have a misconception that it’s a big expense which isn’t the case.

If you want to start a home baking business online to earn an extra income….

You’ve probably been told, "lead with the passion". That’s a dangerous half-truth! Your baking business is only as strong as the foundations it’s standing upon.
