    Hello, Wanted to know if the cottage food law required the business owner to be the lessee of an apartment to qualify the apartment kitchen for inspection?

    As long as you are living in the apartment and the landlord gives their approval, using the apartment’s kitchen shouldn’t be a problem.

    Are you saying that the bakery owner has to be on the lease and have to show a legal lease agreement that they live in the apartment and that they have approval from the landlord?

    I don’t know if you have to approve you’re on the lease, but you do need landlord approval. Generally, you may only run a cottage food business from your “primary residence”. Usually that’s where you primarily live, but not always (a college dorm is still a secondary residence, even if the student lives there most of the year). If you have a vacation home, you could not also run your business from there.
