Start a Specialty Baked Goods Business from Home

What you will be doing.  Want something sweet to eat but tired of the selection in the grocery store? Maybe they don’t offer gourmet foods that diabetics or people with allergies to eggs, gluten, or other foods can eat.

This is where you come in. As a specialty baker, you will provide a selection of breads, cakes, muffins, and desserts for those who can’t eat regular baked goods.

How to start.  As a baker, you know that fresh baked goods don’t last for very long. Given their limited shelf life, they need to be consumed within a week or so. That could lead to a lot of waste if foods aren’t sold. Taking your recipes for dairy free, gluten free, sugar free, and eggless baked foods to a kitchen passes them the job of manufacturing your items to your specifications. This type of facility is better equipped to store and create your foods depending on demand from your customers.

The business will operate in bed and breakfast kitchens, cafes, tourist shops, and catalogue shopping. The hardest part will be getting started with the amount of food you need. Start small and work up to bigger accounts that will bring steady income.

Starting costs.  There will be the cost of hiring a facility to make the items. You can start out at home but that means complying with health regulations for your kitchen and the storage of perishable food items. A separate refrigerator/freezer will be needed at the very least. That’s at least $1,000.

Packaging is also a concern. The food may be good, but it is the presentation that draws people in. A cute wrapping with the logo of your company will turn heads. For different foods, there will be varying sizes of packaging. Starting in your home or hiring a second party to create the foods means several thousand dollars in costs and a small business loan.

Skills needed.  You can cook can’t you? That’s the first skill needed. Baking is an art form that many don’t conquer well. Each batch of bread must be just as sweet and moist as the one before it. Consistency is the key to good baking.

Also creativity plays a role in choosing a packaging design that will showcase the food and catch the eye of customers. Using that business sense, prepare a few succulent presentations for local businesses to get them to take a chance and feature a consignment of your products.

Marketing.  People love to eat. If they taste and like what you offer, the business will pass by word of mouth. Perform demonstrations and give out free samples at flea markets and trade shows. Do taste testing sessions for a small fee at elder care facilities and in the mall if they allow. Grocery stores may be a little harder to get into and their cost for shelf space is phenomenal.

Attach a business card to each item you sell and give away brochures of the items you offer. Full color pictures are best for a business like this. Consider starting a website for people to see what you sell and order there.
