I’m building my business plan for starting up my small business again but in Arizona, not SA anymore since I’ve got to move because of my hubby’s job. I have a very wide range of products that I make but am narrowing it down to those I may legally make and sell in Arizona. Most of them, I fear I’ll have to make in a commercial kitchen so I’m trying to see if it is viable, financially. I have questions about using the following: Fresh, pounded herbs (i.e. in a mortar and pestel) Roasted red peppers Dried tomatoes Roasted sunflower seeds Garlic (here I can use either fresh or dried and I know fresh garlic is probably not allowed!) Chillies (again, fresh or dried but same as with garlic – probably not allowed fresh) Fine grated parmesan cheese
One more question: since raw eggs are not permitted and I want to offer mayo, what could I use in stead? I prefer natural, organic, unmodified ingredients. If I can’t offer that at all, then I’ll just make for us.
I’m sure plenty more questions will arise and I hope no one minds if I post them here.
