Overview

Our cupcake business guide combines the business know-how with the practical advice you need to open your business quickly.

ANYONE can do this — there are already so many stories from professional pastry chefs to amateur bakers with a vision for success. “Start a Cupcake Business Today” equips you with the knowledge and skills you need to start and successfully grow a cupcake bakery anywhere!

Researching the Market for Your Cupcakes
Marketing and Promoting Your Business
Legal Structure and Licensing for a Cupcake Business

A Business Book in a Cupcake Wrapper

Because running a business isn’t familiar to everyone, the “business” chapters of the book are easy-to-follow and use practical language with real-world case-studies in a bakery context. We know it helps to see real examples, so you will have access to both a business plan template and an actual business plan from a successful gourmet cupcake shop to guide you. One of the reasons a cupcake business can thrive is because of a clear focus on a single, high-profit product, compared to a full-service commercial bakery. Creating your own cupcake business concept, rather than investing in a franchise will save you thousands of dollars if you have the right information.

Getting Your Cupcake Business Legal

With the growth in interest in small, sustainable and locally-produced products throughout the food industry there is also a new importance placed on health and legal compliance for small food producers including, traditional bakeries, home business bakers, cupcake trucks, and cupcake businesses selling on the internet . We address the most common issues and concerns from bakery owners to home businesses. Written with consultation from over 50 health, agricultural and municipal business departments you will be guided through the process of getting legal. We cut through the red-tape to alleviate the anxiety most people experience when dealing with health inspectors, tax collectors and licensing agencies. You will receive the latest guidance about the insurance you should have, your tax responsibilities, the most common equipment and construction requirements, how to work and negotiate with your future landlord, what needs to be in a lease,your responsibilities for food safety, and much more. As part of our download library you can access the Health and Safety Inspection charts and checklists used in professional bakeries. Keeping these logs will ensure your success with fire and health inspections.

You will learn how to:
Select the Best Locations for YOUR kind of cupcake business;
Design your Lighting, Counters and Kitchen to Maximize Efficiency and Sales
How to be a Strong Presence in your Community through both Traditional and Web-based Marketing
Understand how to get the TOP results from Search engines, and Best results from Facebook and Twitter.

    Not a bad idea for people trying to start their own business

    I live in France so this book didn't help me so much in setting up shop where I live but it did help me with the pure business side of it. If you need help with formulating ideas or anything creative, this book isn't for you. This book has a sample business plan that is great, tips on how to test your market and the realities of running a cupcake business.
