The most notable bakeries are rarely open to the public but instead sell wholesale baked good to grocery stores, convenience stores, and delis. Much like small bakeries, wholesale bakeries offer a wide range of breads and sweet treats.
Consider taking a different approach to your baking venture by opening a wholesale bakery.
Step 1: Before you begin filling paperwork for your business, consider what could differentiate you from other wholesale competitors. Take a definitive stance, whether using organic ingredient or baking gluten free good.
Step 2: Most states will not allow you to sell good to the public made in a home kitchen; therefore, acquiring a commercial kitchen space is critical.
Step 3: Obtain permits required by either your city or state, which may include food manager certification, food handler’s permit, liability insurance, sales tax permits, or food enterprise licenses.
Step 4: Purchase wholesale ingredients and equipment. Always use the freshest, preferably local ingredients for your bread and pastries. Using local sources for your ingredients will help you cut transportation costs.
Step 5: Create attractive memorable packaging that will help engage potential buyers.
Step 6: Before selling, establish a set of policies for your customers. Your policy may include a minimum purchasing amount, providing a resale license before opening an account, or requiring patrons to keep your labels on products.
Step 7: Compile a list of retailers that could potentially sell your products. Aim for small grocery stores, restaurants, or convenience stores that will most likely open an account with you.
Step 8: When meeting with possible accounts always know your product. Be able to offer valuable information about why you are different or special.
