Alabama Cottage Food Law bill SB352 letter writing campaign - Page 4

post #46 of 96

I just saw this thread. I too am in Alabama. I think the problem is that nobody really knows about it. If we could get a Facebook page going, that would be the best idea. Has anybody done that yet?

post #47 of 96

No, we don't have a Facebook page yet. I will look into creating one as well as a petition!

Alright, I have created a page but I am not good with words! If anyone would be willing to help me with a short info write up for the page purpose, it would be great!! Here is the link to the page. There is nothing on it yet but once we get some info out there we can begin to share it with our friends and create awareness and generate support!

Wonderful. I wonder if there is a way to tie a petition to it????

In a way, I wish I could start a bakery business out of my home kitchen, BUT don't you think that having this law in place prevents everybody under the sun from starting their own baking business thus keeping the competition down a bit?  separates those who are serious about baking & cake decorating from the rest?  

 

I'm interested to know the AL residents thoughts?

I am not quite sure of your question but I'll say this. I do not have enough money to open a storefront and I have what quite a few think are good products. Therefore I would love the idea of earning money to start setting aside for a storefront and the sales information to put together a business plan. I would guess that a lot of storefront owners started out by baking out of their kitchens honing their skills for free or maybe even selling under the table. This is a win win situation for the state and local municipalities in that they will now receive sales tax and business license revenue and people like myself do not have to look over their shoulders and if this is a hobby some extra money or again if like myself a future business owner looking forward to employing others.

I couldn't have said it better myself! I do think there will be a huge influx of bakers in the beginning but I also think most of them will fizzle out. However, without this law none of us will get the chance to try it out before investing tons of money into a business that eventually fails or we decide it wasn't for us.

What would the petition be for? From speaking with other states and seeing what they have done, it appears they had the petition to get the bill written. Since we already have that in work, I am not sure what the petition would be for but maybe I am missing something. I am totally for doing whatever we need to to get this done!!

Of those for it.  But, maybe this is a little redundant given the Facebook page.  Just a thought to show numbers????

Hello everyone.  I have been posting on the Alabama Cottage Food Law Bill page and have created a Facebook  petition to send to Sen Glover's office. Alabama Cottage Food Law Petition. We have seven signitures so far.

It is linked to the Alabama Cottage Food Law Bill page.   I am excited to find so much interest in this and I hope that we can all work together to make this a reality for us.

HI, So nice to find you all  here !
The petition can be found on the Alabama Cottage Food Law Petition page on Facebook.  There is also a link to it from the Alabama Cottage Food Law Bill page.  When we get our 100 signatures  all the names will go to Sen Glover's office. Look at California's new law and the re-visions that Texas is making to theirs. Let's all work together to get a strong law for Alabama. Get the energy moving. So many people here in Alabama need to work and support their families. Some are old and can not live on Social Security alone.  Let's include them too !

 

So nice to find you all  here !

I will be glad to help in anyway I can.  I am a chocolatier, not a Baker, but I so want this to pass ! One thing I have seen , talking to others who have been successful in other states is we need to show strength in Numbers !  This was one of the main reasons that they created a petition.  Let's get ours to Sen Glover THIS week.
