  • People sell homemade items on etsy http://www.etsy.com/  You could also advertise in local papers and take some free samples to businesses.

  • Perhaps you could approach a group...church, kids sports team....what ever to see if you could work out some sort of fund raiser. Have business cards with your product...could do that in front of a store.. This could be considered a donation, even if only a part of the proceeds are given and used for a right off.

  • First, you have to find a commercial kitchen to rent.
