Starting A Specialty Food Business

Starting A Specialty Food Business

Every family has a favorite home recipe they think has commercial potential. Kojo explores what it takes to start a specialty food business and get your product into stores.

Whether it's grandma's coffee cake or mom's pasta sauce, every family has a favorite food they think they could sell. With the national "Fancy Food" trade show coming to D.C. this month, Kojo explores what it takes to start a specialty food business--from moving production out of your home kitchen to getting your product into stores.
