The Gwinnett County Planning Commission: Permit cottage food businesses to be licensed without commercial kitchens.

Both the Gwinnett County and the state of Georgia will benefit if Cottage Food Businesses in Gwinnett County are allowed to legally run their food businesses from their homes, without the need for in-house commercial kitchens. Something like this will see increased business tax revenue. Home-business owners will also have greater opportunities for financial success. In short, employment opportunities stand to be created if the Gwinnett County’s planning and Zoning Division’s assistance frees up the Cottage Food business laws in Gwinnett County.

      My husband and I own a home in Lawrencevile, Georgia. I would like to start a small business to sale my baked goods. Since I cannot afford a commercial kitchen, the cottage food law is the only way this would be feasible for me.

      I'd love to be able to make a little extra money for my family doing what I love, baking and decorating cookies. Honestly it probably wouldn't be too much more than I'm already doing and giving away to friends, family, and the school for free.
