    About this course

    Until recently, if you wanted to turn your passion for cooking or baking into a business you had to operate out of a commercial kitchen which could be a timely and expensive proposition. Thanks to more and more states in the US adopting Cottage Food Laws in the past few years, it's now possible for food entrepreneurs to start and run food businesses from their homes.

    This course is broken up into 23 easy-to-digest lectures that cover everything from Cottage Food Law specifics to other aspects of business licensing you may need. From there the course moves on to helping you create a business plan and business strategy that will make sure your business is moving forward in the right direction.
