You have a very simple problem: you have a product that has generated some interest because of its quality and because, as you put it, there are no decent bakeries nearby. But, you don't have the knowledge or experience to move forward in your plans. That gives you two options and two options only:
1. Take the leap of faith and open your bakery. However, I think any professional chef will agree that your odds of succeeding given your level of experience are very low, if not impossible.
2. Gather the knowledge necessary so you are at least competent in terms of the obstacles and hurdles that you will have to negotiate in order to give your venture the chance that it deserves. There are a few ways you can make that happen:
- Like I said previously, you can partner with professional baker and use their knowledge and experience.
But, you will have to pay them well and probably have to give them some sort of ownership interest.
- Work in a professional bakery or an establishment that specializes in the product you want to produce. That will
give you the opportunity to see how everything works from the inside. The drawback is that it will take time.
- Have your product professionally tested and hire a manufacturing company to handle all of the production.
That will not give you that "home made" charm that you currently have,. But, its an option.
- Continue working out of your own kitchen. However, sooner or later, you will draw the sort of attention that you
do not want. That could easily create a very expensive legal issue.
If you are that eager to push forward, choice #1 is your best bet. If you are not in a hurry, take the time and learn everything you can before you put any plan into motion.
The good news is that none of this is rocket surgery so learning it should be easy. The bad news is there is a lot to learn.
