Shortbread cookie company?
I was thinking of doing a shortbread cookie company and was wondering it feasible to do it?
Open to public, wholesale and online/ship across canada
Is it a profitable enough business?

if i don't do it in a retail store .... am i allow to make the cookies at home and sell them online and farmer markets or do i have to find cheap commercial space that is not a retail storefrontTrevorK wrote: ↑Oct 9th, 2017 9:59 pmPersonally I think that making just shortbread cookies (and even other shortbread based dessert items) is far too small of a market to support a physical location. I think you would be better off finding a following through farmer's markets / online before making the jump. If you cannot succeed at a farmer's market type atmosphere, you will find it very challenging to find success in a retail store.

Just reading through, your 95% positive feedback, what is the sample size? Does your audience know they are testing a product? Are they friends giving you a good feedback?

the uncooked size is 1/4 inch thick and 1.75" inches diameter so when it baked, it will expand a bit obviouslymarketb wrote: ↑Oct 10th, 2017 9:00 pmJust reading through, your 95% positive feedback, what is the sample size?

Start with a branding, and package into cute boxes. Start small, giving them as gifts and include your business card. See if you get any call backs.
