I make out of this world home made spinach pie and cheese pie and I want to start a business out of it and serve it to catering halls, bakery, etc...but I know there must be some rules and guidelines...I have a very tasty product but don't know where to start...legally....any info would be soo appreciated!!!!
First thing to do is educate yourself. Go to a big bookseller like Books-A-Million and buy some books on home businesses. There's probably even a Home Businesses for Dummies one out there. Not that you're a dummy of course, just saying that those books are detail oriented and take you step by step. Also talk to everyone you come across that has done a home business. You will have to figure out the cost of your product. How much it costs per pie, including labor costs if you're going to hire others to help, gasoline if you're delivering,etc. Then you figure out from there what you will charge. You want to make up some business cards for sure and probably a web site as well. Find out where else you can advertise and the costs. GL!
