If you want to start you have to be committed to the business. If not the costs from doing it a couple times will break you. First and foremost contact your department of health to see what the requirements are. Second set up a LLC to protect you from losing the house if someone gets sick, get the necessary business insurances in place. All but certain that your dept of health is going to tell you that you need a commercial kitchen, find a local deli who might let you rent some space to prep food after hours. By the time it is said and done to set up the business and get the necessary equipment you are looking in the neighborhood of $25k invested. Or try it part time from your home without anyone knowing. Taking a risk but more importantly you will probably not land weddings and will not be doing community events as most require business docs and certificate of insurance. Some areas require a servsafe certification also. Started mine full time last year. Have been hitting home runs ever since, dept of health praises us and uses our business as an example for others at events. Also plan on sleeping about 4-5 hours a night nothing more.
