Hey guys. New baker here.
I'm very new to professionally baking but I got my first position 2 months ago in Chicago. I'm extemely passionate, hardworking, and I never stop learning. I'm very open to new things and since I'm a clean slate, I've been trying to learn the way things are really supposed to be done.
I'm very focused AND I moved here for this position so bread is, hands-down, my life right now. However, the bakery I work at does not want to give us OT or give anymore salary positions so I'm forced with short 8 hour days. What am I supposed to do with the rest of my day??
I'd like to start a small side project baking bread for the market, etc. Id like to rent a commissary kitchen/bakery for a bread oven. I'm ServSafe certified. I have a general business plan. And I'll dig deeper into liability insurance if this seems to be a possibility.
I'm just curious if anybody has done this on these boards before. I don't know where to look. I want to invest into where my future is ultimately going to lead me.
Also, I'm know I'm new so feel free to ask me any questions if I have left out any info. Or if ya want to know.
