Opening an artisan bakery

Hi everyone - I love this website!  My quesiton is "how to open an artisan bakery."  Or rather, is there any litterature or websites devoted to the artisan entrepreneur?  If I go this route, I'll certainly have to attend formal education like the SFBI.  I've orded "The Village Baker" - ironically, I used to live in Monterey, right next to Capitola but I wasn't bitten by the bread bug then.

 Thanks!

I would also suggest some other necessary options.

 

One apprentice withsome one not in your area to learn what is needed.

Second, take some classes from AIB aibonline.org

Thanks..does anyone actually "know" someone who has opened a bakery?  How did they get started?

 Thanks!
