What are the next steps to expand my home baked goods business?

Almost two months ago, I launched a home baked goods business.  With virtually no investment, and only a facebook page and some business cards, I have captured clients who all provide positive feedback and repeat business.  I would like to expand to a small store front and kitchen (NON coffee shop type) and would like to know the next steps associated with determining viability of such a decision.   Thank you for your help.

Making the jump from a home based business to the smallest of commercial realestate footprints means a lot of initial costs. I would urge you to itemize those costs in a spreadsheet to start doing a financial analysis. That way you can make an educated decisions regarding any next steps.

As Joseph was alluding to, you always want to continue expanding sales but from your question is seems you want to take the jump into something more "real". When listing all of your expenses, don't forget to inquire to your local govenment regarding what licenses you will need to get to operate a bakery such as health inspector approval.
