You might want to check around locally for a commercial kitchen that leases time. Here in North Alabama there is one in or near Florence. I know of a few products that are made/packaged there. You do it, using their equipment, etc.... Gets you out of a fair amount of the overhead and red tape.
They can also guide you through the entire process from start to finish. If I remember correctly there is a Hot Sauce brand that is made there, and another is Cheese straws.
Just a thought, and good luck.
