The Business of Baking Part 2
So here are today’s takeaways: Making and selling homemade pies as well as homemade butter can be extremely profitable if it is done well and marketed with savvy. In contrast to Mederios’ mother, today we have the advantage of the internet to help they would be entrepreneur know the best price for their product and places to market the product. Although selling locally could be a great opportunity, you also have the ability to sell products even like pies and butter online. I’ve seen entrepreneurs selling perishable products like cakes online on the show Shark Tank make a killing. Just start out small, stay at a debt, and build as you go. Perhaps most critical is both hard work and a willingness to learn from others, from what you can find online, what’s available in terms of resources locally. One of the greatest treasure in US towns and places like Martha’s Vineyard is the public library where one can find thousands of books on baking and butter making, sales, marketing, as well as other topics.
