Is standard split 50/50 when selling from someones store? - Page 2

post #16 of 22
Cakediva73: I sent you a PM with the pricing information, but I just wanted to add something else. If this woman is saying that by selling your baked goods it would save her business I would definitely run the other way as quickly as possible. icon_biggrin.gif If she's not making money right now and in jeopardy of having to close down, you don't want to sink in the ship with her. icon_lol.gif As far as other approaching other cafe's I would definitely try to find someone that you feel comfortable working with and that doesn't give you an uneasy feeling about how they want to do business. I've turned down quite a few offers that could have potentially gotten my name out there because I just didn't feel right about the circumstances or the owner gave me an uneasy feeling in my stomach.

I would also caution you to verify that you can wholesale under whatever your current licensing is. I can only retail to the consumer under my catering license. If I wholesale, I need a manufacturing license and those rules are different.

Is it wholesale if I sell to a restaurant? I know when I got the license information they asked about wholesale and I said no.

yes, as you are selling to them so they can resell it.

retail = direct to final user/consumer

wholesale = sale to a reseller

Yes. If you sell to anyone, who is then going to turn around and sell your products at a mark up, you are their wholesaler.

ok - thanks! I did not realize that. I will have to check into what is involved in adding this to my license or seeing if it is even worth it.
