Save

For people who love dogs, enjoy baking, and have a keen interest in canine nutrition, a doggie bakery can be a highly profitable business opportunity. A doggie bakery can be started for as little as $300 to $500 in your own kitchen.

Product Line

  • Thousands of free dog treat recipes are available on the Internet. Modify recipes to develop your own unique product line.

Equipment Costs

  • The necessary equipment and utensils needed for a dog bakery are readily available in most kitchens: oven, food processor, measuring spoons, measuring cups and cookie sheets. Plan to spend about $20 to $30 for decorating aids, such as cookie-decorating bags and tips, and cookie cutters in fun shapes like bones or gingerbread men.

Ingredient Costs

  • The cost to stock the bakery pantry and refrigerator will initially be about $150. The ingredients for an organic bakery will cost significantly more.

Marketing Costs

  • Design your own business cards at one of the several print on demand shops on the Internet. Some offer logo design services, do-it-yourself websites, brochures, vehicle signage, and other business-marketing tools. Depending on your budget and requirements, this aspect of your business may cost less than $100 or more than $200.

Bookkeeping Budget

  • Invest in small business accounting software, like Quickbooks or Simply Accounting, or download an open source bookkeeping program for free.
