Your bakery size?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What size is your bakery? I am researching the sq ft I need to start the business. I was thikinking about 600 sf (about 12 x 50 ft). I do not want a storefront but need to convert a space. All I want is a kitchen for me to work in a area to see clients and do paper work.

Tell me about the size of your space and how it is set up. Need to generate some ideas,

My first shop was 500 sq. ft. The kitchen area was set up like my home kitchen, and I loved it. Everything was within reach - I had two small worktables between the deck oven and the wall unit (which held all supplies/ingredients). My retail sales area was large enough for 5 or 6 customers.

About 1200 sf. I have potos on my site in the about us section. But mine is set up for three different work stations. Also, about 200 sf is used for displays and a spot for me to take a break... work table with a tv and comfortable seating... for any tedious work.

Take a break? Holy moly, Susan. Does the boss know about this cozy little set-up?

900 sq ft, and I could probably use a bit more space. But in PA we are required to use all commercial equipment (i.e. refrigeration/ovens/ranges w/ hoods etc) and have several sink areas,so it requires quite a bit of space.
