Baking for Caterers!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I have a question for all of you caterers out there. I am new to Cheftalk and fairly new to the baking world. I have a small home based baking business that is growing. I recently met a caterer at a fund raising event. Could any of you shed some light about product pricing when selling to caterers? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hello,

I am a caterer and frequently buy baked goods from "in-home" bakers. They generally give me 10-15% off their retail price.

Hope that helps.

Not sure where your located but here in California it is illegal to sell food that was not cooked/baked in a health board inspected commercial kitchen.

In Florida  illegal and if something happens your insurance will not cover it.  In NY it was also illegal  and well it should be.

Until January 1, 2013, that was the law in California. That has changed  with AB 1616, signed by Gov. Brown: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/california-politics/2012/09/gov-jerry-brown-legalizes-sale-of-home-cooked-foods-in-california.html

 

After complying with some rather straight forward requirements, it is now legal to prepare and sell non-PHF products from a residential kitchen though there is a limit on the maximum gross income, $35k in 2013, $50k thereafter.

My friend owns a catering service and the share there sometimes is 10% but it all depends and is a matter of personal preferences. Info by Pete was helpful. personal injury law firm
