Publisher Comments:

Home-based baking is one of Americas best-kept business secrets. This sleeper industry offers even novice bakers the opportunity to bake from home for profit using tried and true recipes and equipment already on hand. And yet its many rules and how-tos are so elusive that few people out there who love to bake and dream of taking their products from the kitchen to the market actually end up doing so. Enter How to Start a Home-Based Bakery Business—the first book to cover every essential aspect of planning, starting, and running such a business successfully.
