Yes, your right! When I first started I would check out others around me-mainly because I thought that's how I would learn about pricing, luckily I found this site! So I try to just focus on being better at what I do. And I know I don't want that type of clientele anyway! I just stumbled onto to her page in one of the 'yard sale' type groups via FB.
Thank you all for your input on my mini pitty party lol it just gets frustrating because they do 'spring up' all the time, but I suppose they won't be in 'business' for that long, going about it that way. Jason, she's actually in a different State, which borders mine it's about 15-20min away but yes they still have restrictions and I doubt she follows them or knows much about cross-contamination let alone ServSafe/Proper Food Handeling. I never thought to contact the Health Department. It seems a bit petty, but perhaps it's due to ignorance?! I worked in the food industry for years so (from large restaraunts to small in all different aspects) most of it seems like second nature to me.
