Starting a business

Has anyone started their own bussiness in the Kansas area and have tips. I want to start a cake business but am not sure how to get started. So any tips would be great. I also have four kids and another job that I have to work until i start making money.

  • I would work at a local (but a town away from where you want to open yours) cake business to get a feel for how someone else runs it. Maybe the owner would like to help you figure things out.

  • Will this be a home based business? If so, then you need to check with your local and state laws about home kitchens. Some states require an inspection while other states require a separate kitchen completely and even some states don't permit a home kitchen. You can call your local health department to find out more information on this.

  • Yes, be careful with a food-based business, in addition, there will be a business license with the city or county you are in. Capital is the key when starting a business - it does not sound like you have the extra $ for that.
