Jo Home-based food license Inspection Review

I engaged Jackie from Contemporary Cakes and Classes to advise me on the council requirements and the application process to having my home-based cake business licenced.

I decided to have a 1 on 1 session where Jackie came to my home and we worked through what was expected of a home-based kitchen with Brisbane City Council.

Jackie had very helpful suggestions to minor works I needed to carry out on my home.  During the consultation, we reviewed the application process and record-keeping paperwork required to be certified.

Jackie was knowledgeable and helpful and answered all my questions.  During the application process, Jackie was also a big help with extra phone calls for advice and clarification on some tricky council questions.

I would highly recommend Jackie from Contemporary Cakes business advise as she has a wealth of knowledge and she is very easy to deal with.

Thank you, Jackie, I don’t think I could have done it so easily on my own – 5 Stars…
