Question

I want to start a home-based catering/bakery business, what do I need to do?

Answer

Private homes cannot be licensed as a food service establishment. The FDA Food Code states: “A private home, a room used as living or sleeping quarters, or an area directly opening into a room used as living or sleeping quarters may not be used for conducting food establishment operations.” In addition, room finishing materials and equipment must be commercial grade and meet specific construction, durability and cleaning requirements
