A Microenterprise Home Kitchen Operation is a business engaging in small-scale sales of freshly made meals created in a home kitchen. Under this NEW law (AB 626), individuals must obtain a permit to legally sell homemade meals. Meals must be prepared, cooked and sold, all on the same day. Customers can eat in your home or take-out. Most specialty dishes except those that are prepared by curing, smoking or include oysters, are allowed under this new law. This is a fun and convenient way to make extra money from home. If you have an entrepreneurial mindset, a passion for cooking fresh and delicious meals, adhere to safe food handling practices, and enjoy meeting your neighbors and others in your community that value fresh homemade food, opening your own Microenterprise Home Kitchen Operation is for you! In this class, you will learn about: the details of the new law, the permitting and inspection processes, start-up costs, food safety requirements, meal costing, meal pricing, and marketing of your Microenterprise Home Kitchen Operation. This class includes an extensive packet with all the information that you need to start your own Microenterprise Home Kitchen Operation. Bring a snack for a brief lunch break.
