Starting a Cookie Biz in Wisconsin

Hello everyone!!  New to this site.  I am a cookie crazed women and enjoy the art of cookies.  In the state of Wisconsin we have the strictest of codes regarding the cottage food laws here as far as I know.  I am considering opening a business, are there any kitchens to rent?  I know my cookies are loved by everyone who tries them, they taste good, are professional looking but, I don't want to just jump in without testing the waters for a while before investing in the whole nine yards.  Am I crazy?  Are there food kitchens for rent?  To try this venture out for a bit before taking the full plunge? 

Cookies are the happy dance of life

There are definitely food kitchens to rent in my market, and I'm sure there are in yours too, though finding one may take some sleuthing and local research. Churches often have approved commercial kitchens that are underutilized, so that is one place to start. When I first started, I rented part of another caterer's kitchen (a corner, a refrigerator and an oven) and that worked well for about six months. It had some drawbacks - like savory product sometimes fouling up my storage space - but it was a cost effective way to start.

Thanks. I am excited to be here.  I've been thinking about this for such a long time.  I'm tired o f not doing anything about it.  I want to make this happen.  I have so much work to do to get it up and running.  Everyone here has great ideas and a willingness to share their ideas that's great.  Looking forward to more great fun with all of you.

Just take it in bits and pieces, and it will all come together over time, I'm sure!
