i got enough of city life for a while now and so does my wife
was looking at opening fish & chips or some other food thing in quite small town.
but my wife tells me i should open bakery because i make good bread
idea maybe not too bad because there is no bakery over there but i don't think bread and rolls on its own would be enough to keep people coming and since it is small town you need them all coming all the time or you out of business i figure.
so can any one point me in right direction or maybe beat the idea of me with big stick if you think it is a bad one.
i got block of land over there but we wont build for couple of years so i got time.
how should i use it?
do i need person with food handling certificate or whatever it is called or could i master my own baking style and run bakery without any certificates.
i seen tafe got retail baking that goes for 3-4 years and it is part time plus apprientince spot in bakery? it would be hard to do this, it if was only TAFE and part time than sure or quick course of 12hours a day sort of thing, but to put everything upside down for 4 years is bad idea for me as i run computer related business that eats up most of my time.
when i came to australia first time i worked in bakery for a while (no bread but pizza bases only) so i know how to use big mixer, owen, etc... than on top of that i love baking so i got time to work out my own range of products in my own time and write all down, etc...
every time we go over there for weekend we feel sorry for all those people that got no bread other than what milkbar is selling (those things that look like bricks and tase the same for whole week)
