How to Start a Cookie Business?

A coworker of mine has started a cookie business and she started it by bringing in some cookies for people to try. Then she let everyone know that they could order the cookies and the pricing. She sends out emails each week letting you know when the cookies will be available and takes orders in advance. She has now expanded into a couple of local gas station mini marts and a couple of small local produce stores. She has been expanding slowly and will eventualy go to the internet to sell them as well. Whether or not you choose to market on the internet depends on how much time you have to dedicate to this venture.
