Toronto - Seeking Business Partner for Startup Artisan Bakery
Very longtime lurker here, only recently made an account.
I'm an experienced home baker who is making the transition to opening a small artisan bakery.
The business focuses on sourdough breads, and savoury take-out snacks such as focaccia, soft pretzels, sandwiches etc.
A great deal of planning has gone into this; equipment is sourced, market research, funding, branding, website, suppliers, recipes all taken care of. Lease negotiations are in process now.
Still, it is a risky endeavour, as all food business startups are.
I've been operating alone throughout the planning phase, but am now potentially looking for a business partner. Someone who is not afraid of a lot of hard work, and in it for the love of baking.
I know it's a little crazy to put this out online, and I've reached out to real-life baking acquaintances first, but I'm keeping my options open, and I think there may be TFL users in Toronto who fit the bill.
I know there are others as passionate and capable as I am, or moreso, who may be yearning for just this opportunity.
This endeavour came about because I was dissatisfied with my work-life, and ready to commit time, money, and energy to trying to make a living doing what I truly love. You should feel the same.
If you are in Toronto, and interested in an endeavour like this, feel free to email me for more information.
Edit to clarify: Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
