Do you have it takes to open a bakery? Ask yourself the following:
Do you like baking? It is critical that you like baking because you will not learn the skills you need if you're not interested. Who will bake the bread if your workers suddenly decide to leave?
Are you willing to sacrifice to your time? Usually bakers or workers prepared the dough as early as 9:00 in the evening so bread would be available as early as 5:00 in the morning the next day.
Do you know your bread? There are two types of bread, the lean and the soft. Lean breads are European products that are hard, compact and crisp. The soft types are the buns, which are sweeter. Each type requires different methods of baking, so you must decide what type of business you want: a plain bakery, a bakeshop, or a combination of these. From there you can come up with the right ingredients, materials, and equipment to start.
The reason why I mentioned this thing, it is because I have planned to have my own bakeshop. There is a school for baking near here in our place and I wanted to enroll myself because I only know the instant baking, and I wanted to learn on how to make a commercial baking.
