This is because it one of the most growing industries as a small business. All I can say is if you work hard enough can make your bakery stand out. Baking can be profitable venture as long as you have the talent of a baker, ambition and a solid business plan. To start off you will need a list thing you will need to start your bakery.
You will first need a commercial bakery oven. Obviously you can’t bake without an oven so that is your first item on your list. Make sure you get a high quality one as you probably going to use for a while.
There will be bakery equipment for sale at certain companies. Some companies are specialized just to cater all the resources needed by a bakery. Find one and you will be able to find everything you need under one roof. Other things you will be needing are baking sheets, racks, and not to forget working tables. Make sure the table very sturdy because you will be using them pretty hard. Good sinks and so on. Once you get your items list done. You need to think what kind of bakery you are going to open. There are bakeries that offer only baked items some offer tea and sandwiches as well to go along with the baked items.
If you going to offer tea and coffee you will need cups and so on, this is best decided after a research on the local demand for baked goods. Just as you made a list of equipment needed create list of ingredients needed. Now that you have the entire needed check list in order you need a mind blowing plan to put everything together to make your objective a reality. Time to set goals, how much profit are you looking to make at the end of the month, end of the year. Will that be enough to pay off all the expenses such the location, staff, taxes, etc.? Balance your financial plan.
You can’t run the show alone can you? You will need a few extra hands to help out. You will need some assistants. Have an interview if you want but since you just starting off I would recommend you just keeping it very flexible, because you are learning as well.
Start baking and always remember that customer care is where you will be able to keep making those customers coming back to you.
