5 Fun Food Business Ideas for the Summer

Sell everyone's favorite snacks this summer!

Summer is the best time to invest in trying out new hobbies or honing your skills in what you’re good at. If you’re a home cook or home baker, this is the perfect opportunity to start a small home-based food business for the summer! Ask your friends to help you out and accept food orders from your neighbors and family friends. Another great way to advertise your product? On social media!


Try out these easy recipes that are good starters for your food business. Cookies, pies and bars hold up well (pack them in cute boxes!) and bottled food can last very long in the heat.
