Good day all. Thanks in advance.
I have an opportunity to make flavored butters/spreads and drinks for a local personal chef. I understand that in order to do this, I'll have to become a formal business, with liability, a business name and all that.
My question is, what kind of permit will I need? I know I'll need to rent a kitchen as I cannot do these kinds of things at home. I'm not really catering as I'll be selling my wares to the personal chef and not the general public, at least at this point. Perhaps if my products are well received I can see me wanting to sell them at local business and maybe the local farmer's market (but those are big if's, I know). I'm certainly no chef, so any permits relating to with restaurant operations seems a bit much.
May I please get your advice on this? What type of business will I be; what type of permits (in FL) will I require for this type of product? I hope I have provided enough info. Obviously, I'm a noob who just happens to have a product others seems to really want. Beyond that I have no experience in this area.
