Places to make foods to sell!
A licensed kitchen is an inspected, registered commercial kitchen where foods intended for sale can be safely made, in accordance with laws and
regulations. While many states allow some low-risk foods to be made at home and sold in smaller quantities, many foods intended for sale can only be
made in a licensed kitchen. If you want to make and sell your home-made preserves, salsa, spaghetti sauce, refrigerated foods or whatever, you will need
a licensed kitchen to prepare and can the food. many licensed kitchens open their doors at low cost to local food entrepreneurs.
