Cottage Food Sharing Platform Interest
(Only for Washington State residents)
We are creating a platform (
) that enables users to sell and purchase home baked goods that are regulated by Washington state food laws. Licensed/inspected home bakers will list their business and goods on our platform, and you will be able to buy them. The key features will allow you to see who you are buying from and directly message the baker with any specific requests or concerns. The food will either be delivered to you, or you can pick it up and meet the baker themselves.
Ultimately, our mission is to nurture flourishing local communities where home bakers and local buyers can share a common love for baked goods. We are sending out this survey to gauge interest in this platform, and to understand who you are and what your needs are.
These survey responses are completely confidential and anonymous. All of the questions are optional, so feel free to answer only those which you are comfortable with.
