In order to work in our kitchen, we require the following;
~ A valid food handlers certificate. Halton is not currently offering one (as at Jan 7, 2023), but here is a list of ministry approved certification providers.
~ Business liability insurance listing MollyCake as an insured in the amount of $3million (we recommend reaching out to Grant Leslie at Desjardins, 905.469.4499 for a comparison quote.
~ A complete and signed agreement
~ A $300 securtiy deposit held til the end of your term
The following are not required by the kitchen, this is your business to run as you decide, but did you know ...
~ to start any kind of business venture, you are required to get a business license through the city of Burlington. This is different than registering your business name.
~ opening up your own food based business also requires that you get a health inspection in the kitchen. Luckly this is a quick and painless process. We recommend calling 311 and leaving a message for Rod, our current health inspector. The health department offers a wealth of information on the best way forward.
