I am going to change my career path.  I love making cakes and I think I have to change my hobby into a business. It is really difficult for me to work under someone. After reading this blog https://www.ontariobusinesscentral.ca/blog/3-inspiring-people-who-turned-hobbies-into-businesses/ I decided to quit my job and start a business. I know, I need an initial deposit for the store. I am not planning to spend many since this is my first business and I am inexperienced. I need to rent a store, I am looking for one which rent less than $2000. Is there anyone any building that cost less in Toronto? Are there anyone here changed their hobby to business?

I would look to see if Toronto has anything like the Cleveland Culinary Launch & Kitchen (CCLK). It provides a fully equipped commercial kitchen for rent to food entrepreneurs on an “as needed” basis and quickens the process of starting a food business by offering mentoring and networking opportunities:

I know a business that started here and after selling products at farmers markets, is now preparing to open a brick and mortar store. The launch kitchen helps eliminate costs and some risks assumed by new food entrepreneurs.

I second Kris’s advice. Keep your costs and investment as low as possible initially. Build the business over time.

Very interesting idea. Good luck! but remember, advertising is very important, so do not forget about business promotion.

If you want to change your hobby into the business you have to need some help. Start your business with $1 Web Hosting and make it larger fast at an affordable price.
