Alright everyone, I need info quick. Please help! I met a new restaurant owner who would like eggs and chicken for her NEW establishment. This is what happened- my friend and I go for a walk as often possible and this new restaurant had a grand opening during one of our walks. We stopped in, and found out that they shop local ( I work at a school, one of our students families provides the NEW restaurant with fresh produce) My friend mentions I raise chickens- they now want eggs and birds. How fast can I make this happen- 8 weeks? I raise banties for gods sake. How do I get insta -laying leghorns to provide eggs? How do i know how many. her business is new, she doesn't know how many. How do you work out a deal for meat birds? I have no idea how many they would need being a new restaurant? Or how much to charge. Does any one here know how to start to develop a business plan for this- especially since all my eggs are in one basket so to speak? Do I need a certification of any kind? THANKS EVERYONE IN ADVANCE.
