Owning a food business...

 Ever wonder what that would be like? I just read a novel by a woman who writes about food for magazines, and I thought it would be a good read for someone who has wondered what it would be like to have a food business while trying to raise a family. The cover notes say, "Take one organic food venture, add two kids, season with mayhem." It's called Julia's Child by Sarah Pinneo. There are even a few healthy but toddler friendly Muffets (muffins). I saw this in the library on a display of books with food themes, and I'm glad I checked it out. It was a fun read, but had very realistic situations of what can happen. Been there, done that.

haha no desire here to own anything food related! I want to own my own kids consignment shop but in my area rent is too high. I have run the numbers several times on the area i would want to put the shop but i just cannot make the business plan come out profitable. boooo

 I've always wanted to own a little place to throw children's birthday parties, especially tea parties.

 When you own a bar, if it doesn't sell you don't have to throw it away; it doesn't spoil. I once worked as a bartender in a beachside luxury tourist hotel. I loved it.

 I can't imagine how much work it would be to own a restaurant or other food business.  I wouldn't mind working there but I wouldn't want to be the owner.

 have you considered doing it through Etsy? i have a friend who started her consignment shop through etsy and over the few years had a great turn out. probably got cheaper than doing in a store front. :)

I've never owned one but I think it would take a lot of hard work.
