membership-gridGetting Started

If you are not currently a BAKR member, you will have to complete the steps below before using our facility.

  1. Set up an appointment to discuss your business needs and find out which rate package works best for you.
  2. Every individual or group interested in operating at BAKR must be a separate business entity.  You are responsible for acquiring all necessary permits from the county, city, and/or state regarding food safety, licensing, taxes, etc, based on your business needs.  Most common are:
    • Business Tax License - You are required to have a business license for every city in which you are retailing/wholesaling. BAKR requires proof of at least one of these licenses.
    • Health Permit - You are required to have a health permit–either county or state.
      • BAKR requires proof of at least one of these permits and you will be required to list BAKR as your commercial kitchen/food truck commissary on your application.
  3. Every BAKR member must attain $1M liability insurance with BAKR listed as additional insured.
  4. Every one of your staff members must also retain a Food Handler’s Card with at least one member getting a Manager’s Certificate.
