What is a fair percentage to shop owner?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

So I'd love some feedback as to what is a fair percentage to give to a shop owner if you are operating under their food license, occasionaly working out of their facility.  Orders would come from shops clientelle as well as exisiting/new customers for me...

 

Materials paid for by me...

 

So basically I would be operating under the shops umbrella ( anyone in NJ knows what a giant situation this is)... And since I've not done this before I'm unsure what percentage would be fair to give to owner.

 

Appreciate the input..

Can you clarify your situation? Do you have your own business or are you an employee or contractor of the shop? Where do you work on orders when not at the shop owner's facility?

I have my own business that I've been operating out of my home ( illegally in NJ) that I have an LLC established for...   Not an employee of the shop..  Would work on orders still out of my home setup but would be operating out of her facility for legal purposes...

 

Thanks!

When I sold cakes in my legal shop in NJ, the last person I'd give advice to is someone doing it illegally.

Good luck.

Though, I do give you credit for being honest.

Please dont misunderstand...  My intentions are to be operating ( not just on paper) completely legally within a month.. Sorry if that wasnt clear.  :)

If I was the shop owner and your home kitchen was not inspected I would not agree to this setup, since that would be a health violation that I would be responsible for if you were under my shop's umbrella.

Instead I would probably rent you my kitchen space at an hourly rate so you could have your own license, inspection, insurance, etc. Under this situation no commission would be necessary since I would be receiving income from the kitchen rental.

WOW, I wonder how many people have taken screen shots and contacted the IRS and Health Department?

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

I can't imagine why anyone would do that, or what purpose it would serve.

A. OP hasn't even started his business yet, he is just asking a question
B. There is no reason to believe that OP is evading taxes so it doesn't make sense to contact the IRS
C. There is not enough information in the CC post to narrow down which county health dept has jurisdiction

Ah, I see. Points B and C still apply.

My goodness!  I'm stunned at the ugliness simmering under the surface here.  But, perhaps I'm naive....

Um, how many illegal home bakers pay taxes? Seriously? (eye roll)

Her website says Bloomington, NJ.

 

And when people work their a$$es off, spent tons of money, and play by the rules, it pisses people off when others don't, then throw it in their faces.
