I am a Pastry Lover and would like to start a pastry shop that offers good quality pastries and desserts.. I have not studied cooking and know nothing about the business, but i am willing to spend time and efforts to start the business. Now I need your advise in what to look for and take into consideration. Should I first find a good pastry chef then he will help in selecting the equipments and be the main chef? How should I go about the actual layout/design of the shop? Is it known in the ndustry if I bring an interim senior pastry chef to train a few junior chefs?
I appreciate your help and support..
