John Taberner


Dear Fellow Baker,

If you would like to know how to start a bakery,or how to start a cake shop; then you have come to the right place, where the author, John Taberner has been a professional baker for over 50 years. 

John built his own bakery from the ground up, moved a bakery from one location to another. Opened or assisted in opening several start-up bakery business, like plant manufacturing style bakeries, as well as in-store bakeries, has managed both in-store, corner shop and home based bakery businesses.

One of the first things to understand while you are here, on the how to start a bakery home page, is that there are a large variety of products that come under the term BAKERY and starting a cake shop is one of them.

These products can be made, or (manufactured), also in a number of locations and under different types of facilities.

There are of course certain things to know  on learning how to start a bakery, whether you want to learn how to start a cake shop, a bakery business from home. You need to ask " what do i need to learn to start my own bakery or what do i need to learn to start a cake shop".

Are you wanting to learn how to start a bakery within a bricks & mortar shop, perhaps open my own cupcake bakery, maybe it's just a business idea starting a bakery business and you need to get more information. There are many products in a bakery with which you can start a bakery with, even become a manufacturing bakery.

What licenses do i need for a home bakery, is a question to ask before, "how to have a profitable bakery". How hard to start bakery will be answered by your bakery business plan with your experience and confidence.

You should collect all necessary information required to start a bakery. Nobody should go into any kind of home based bakery business, or a bricks & mortar business without a business plan and this "IS" your first step.

There are books on starting your own bakery and some of these can also give you an idea on production techniques and costs for a bakery business, some might also tell you about the equipment needed to start a bakery. One or two might also tell you what that equipment will cost. It is highly unlikely though, because most, if not all books are re-writes of books on how to start a business, which are books with generic subjects and talk of Widgets.

Some of these books "might" be specific - "i want to start a bread shop", will only deal with starting a bread shop. It will not tell you how to start a cake shop bakery. Nor will it likely tell you how to design a bakery, or give you a floor plan.

Similarly, there are books on do-nut shops. Books on franchises will deal mainly with that particular franchise - Coffee shop franchise - donut shop franchise or bread shop franchise in which you are governed by the franchisor and the franchise agreement. Each one is different!

How to start a bakery deals entirely with starting a bakery. That bakery could be starting a cake shop.

Some requirements for starting a cake shop will be the same as starting a home based bakery, will also be the same as a bricks & mortar bakery business

  • design a bakery
  • bakery how much space
  • managing a bakery
  • what do you need to start a bakery
  • how to manage a bakery coffee shop
  • how to have a profitable bakery
  • the production planning of bakery business
  • what licenses do i need for a home bakery

You will find people who - that are planning to start a new bakery, want layout designs.

If you want to buy a bakery cost is a factor. So how much is the cost to open a bakery store?

That question will come from your planning how to start a bakery or how to start a cake shop.

There is no one answer to that.

It will depend entirely upon your type of bakery and what products you are planning on producing in your bakery business. This is why you have a business plan.

How much space do you need for this bakery.

  • 1000,

Stats Canada released their findings for
September 2008 which said, 30,000 people
became self employed in one month alone.


Wouldn't you like to be one of those new businesses in next months stats in your own location.

Did you know that supermarket breads were likely made up to five days before it is delivered into the store.
(I used to be a foreman in such a plant bakery business).

You could make dough every day and have that aroma drifting throughout the countryside. Just imagine your customer coming into the bakery and telling you...

"I could smell your cinnamon buns a mile down the road
I JUST had to come and buy some"!


What others have said..

"Changing the color in the sales area from the clinical white, to a Burnt Carrot REALLY made an impression" Thanks JT
I'd like to thank you for talking to me when I needed guidance. It's not to often you can find someone as helpful as you were.
Best Regards, Rick 
The book provided a lot of knowledge and I thank you for that. I just know I'm happier making bread than doing anything else. Ed.

Learning a trade can cost you a lot of money. It can also take years to gain real experience. 

You will never lose that money if it is used for education. It does not matter as to what country you live in, because education is an experience everyone needs to go through in their life.

How to start a bakery or start a cake shop is education, but unless you do it in a certain way, that education could end up costing you thousands in whatever your own currency may be.

Starting a bakery or starting a cake shop are one of the best business to be employed in, but a lot better to be in a business you own. It is very rewarding to your customers with personal service and fresh products.

As I said earlier, experience comes at a cost and over time it certainly mounts up. If I had known about how to start a bakery business then, I could have saved myself a lot of time, money and aggravation. Resulting in more profits to my own cake shop bakery .

Instead of working for a set hourly wage I could have been making a nice 30-70% profit on the products we make and easily doubling or even tripled my earnings.

Of course, you can only get this education by spending a lifetime of learning. Or paying someone a consulting fee by the hour which cost anywhere from $500 to $1500 dollars per hour or more. And if you have them design your business plan... well that alone can be $5000 to $10,000 dollars, Then you will still need to get and find your location.

So you can see, the information I am including in this guide can easily be valued at, well at least that, what it has COST ME to learn over the years.

However, I am not going to ask you pay that much . Not $497 dollars, even though this information is well worth that. Not even $197.00 dollars , even though this information would be well worth that much to start your own bakery business, and could perhaps be a tax write-off, with it's equipment list and bakery design along with a list of products as well as  costing's. Plus, I am giving you a sample business plan too!

Why am i willing to offer you this information at such a low cost you ask?

Well, I know how difficult it was for me to access all the information I required to open my own bakery business and I want to help both you and the general public.

You see. By my helping you achieve your goals of starting a bakery or starting a cake shop, the general public gets bread and or cakes that has flavorful and without chemicals that does "NOT" taste like cardboard.
