vegan success!!

Finally have access to this blog again after having forgotten the password. Grrrr..

Our business cards are in the mail-can't wait to get and see them!
Unfortunately, it feels like there are a LOT of road blocks when it comes to starting a baking business.
Just read this article and found out that even if we use a certified kitchen, if we want to sell our goods from somewhere, we need to have liability insurance. This can cost about $1000/year. It looks like we're going to be fundraising just to start our own business!!

These days we're trying to get our name out there. Have given out some gift certificates as prizes at the vegan bake off in toronto, and for the CHRY ( funding drive that's going on. This Wednesday from 1-4 pm listen to Natty B's Zion Train where our donations will be featured as prizes!!

Getting serious

It's time for Omega Creations to really push forward. October will be our final outdoor Vegan Bake Sale, so we have to start thinking about where else we can be selling our goods.
It isn't easy to find good fresh baked vegan goods in Toronto. Sure there are places to buy muffins, Sweets from the Earth, but not one vegan-catered bakery/cafe. I think we would both like to at least start selling from a cafe (in Kensington Market-great location) and then see what happens from there. This means having weekly access to a certified kitchen. Also, for at least one place to say 'hey, we'd love for you to sell your goods from our business.' :)
