Selling Baked Goods From Home Where To Sell My Cupcakes At
So you have
always been told that you are a good baker and should open up a bakery
or sell your baked goods somewhere. However, if you are like most of us
you are nervous and scared about opening up your own bakery because of
the economy faltering or you might not just have enough capital to
qualify for a business loan that you need to make the equipment
purchases that are needed to have a proper bakery. If that is the case
for you then here are some ideas that can help you sell your bake goods
that you might not have thought of trying before.
The first place that you can try to do with your bake goods is bake some samples that you can take to various smaller local coffee shops. I know that most areas you can easily find a small locally owned coffee shop that either bakes their own goods or has to order them from a supplier. Which most locally owned coffee shops in my experience would rather have the ability to purchase the baked goods that they sell from a local person rather than have to pay for the shipping and cost of their supplier or have to worry about the supplier deciding to stop carrying a product.
The second place that you might want to investigate selling your bake goods at would be going to local flea markets and seeing about renting a stall to sell your bake goods at. However, you will want to find out what the local regulations are prior to doing this to find out what you will have to comply to for the laws. So you will want to ask about this when you call to inquire about a space at a flea market because from time to time they will have the numbers that you need to be able to contact the proper person to find out what you need to do to be in compliance with the law.
The third place that you could try selling your bake goods to is at local farm stands during the summer months or craft shows in the winter months. Now for these places you might have to talk to the owner of the farm stand, or organizer of the craft show to ensure that baked goods would be acceptable to sell at their location.
While many people might tell you that your baking would sell you will never really know until you try to sell your bake goods at various stores. However, if you do not have the money to start your own bakery here are some great ideas of where you can sell your own baked goods.
