How to know if a bread is going to be popular?
Hello, I am working on my business plan and I have a few questions.
1) Sourdough is not readily available here, even our local bakery only makes plain and on Fridays only. They sell out by noon. How do I know if there is a market for it if I want to concentrate on sourdough loaves?
2) I am trying to work on my business plan and hope to be up and running a year from now, so plenty of time to work on products. Is this the right place to post my outline for feedback? Or is there a better site for this?
I tried my local SBA seven years ago and was told, "a woman doesn't have a chance" by a grumpy old man so I never bothered with them again. I am picking this dream of mine back up and plan to give it a chance once my youngest starts preschool. I am not going to do this blindly, I am trying to make sure I have all the business ducks in a row and that my products are consistent. I am looking to start with cookies, muffins, scones, cinnamon rolls, and sourdough bread (loaves and rolls). I still have a lot of work to do to make my things sell-worthy, but I have time and hungry neighbors!
