Most communities have the capacity to support a well-run bakery operation. With good planning and access to raw materials and markets, setting up a bakery can represent an excellent enterprise opportunity. Baking for Profit provides the information that a small entrepreneur needs to address when setting up a bakery. The emphasis is on clear advice and instruction, beginning with effective planning. The opening chapter covers first steps, including setting about the vitally important feasibility study. Subsequent chapters cover other aspects of setting up the business, such as choice of site and layout of buildings, hygiene and safety, raw material selection and choosing the right type and scale of machinery and equipment. The book gives appropriate recipes for initial production, as well as guidance on suitable production systems. There are also troubleshooting charts giving advice on overcoming production problems, as well as useful advice on stock management. This practical manual is invaluable reading for those who are starting out in the bakery business, those whose job it is to advise others doing so, or those who want to scale up existing operations to increase their profits.

This book is for anyone interested in producing bakery products of consistent quality and low operating costs. This book is also intended to be used as a professional reference. There are many good books available about the art and science of baking. However, these other books do not help an owner or a bakery manager grow their businesses. In the baking industry, all successful businesses begin with quality products. These businesses almost always start in a kitchen, and then the company has to figure out how to keep up with the growing demand for these bakery products. Fortunately, if the company makes prudent decisions, it is possible to drive down operating costs. On the other hand, if the company cannot produce consistent quality; or if the operating costs are out of control, the company will soon be out of the baking business. This handbook should help more and more aspiring bakers sustain their success.
