In 2002, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and the cost of everything was so outrageous that I couldn’t afford to put my family on it. Now that my children are grown and gone, and I live alone, I have found a passion for baking my own cookies and candies. I have noticed that the cost of gluten free flours are decreasing and I am going to use my passion to bake these same snacks for others who require this diet. If I open this from home, I can offer these goods for a cheaper price than big box stores. I live in Texas and I’ve been looking for all the requirements necessary but can’t find them. Do you have any suggestions on opening this kind of homemade business? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
