I’m looking for some advice. I’m in the early stages of planning a juice business with the eventual goal being to have a brick and mortar store. I’m needing to start lower cost because I don’t have enough to jump into a brick and mortar.
I’m specifically looking for advice on working with someone with a commercial kitchen to rent for juice production. I’m looking at starting with the X-1 Mini. So is it reasonable to work out a deal where I could leave the equipment in the kitchen even if I’m juicing once or twice a week to start?
Produce delivery or going to pick it up and storage of produce until juicing would require me to have access to walk-in cooler space. Also, walk-in space possibly overnight if I’m juicing in the evening and delivering the next morning.
I know each situation is unique, and I might have to work to find the right partner for renting kitchen space.
My goal is to juice and bottle, then have a handful of local places that I deliver to where my customers would pick up. There are a couple places nearby that people are already accustomed going to to pick up other local products that are “delivery”.
