Food Products You Can Make And Sell

Looking for a tasty, fun way to make some extra cash? Then making and selling your own food products might be just what you’ve been searching for. These types of at-home businesses are relatively easy to get underway. All you really need to get started is to have a great recipe! Once you have, it’s all about a bit of branding and marketing, and you’ll be on your way.

You’re unlikely to get rich overnight selling food products, but it can provide a decent side income. Plus, if the product is good enough, then who knows what the future could hold? Let’s take a look at some of the foods that make the most sense for at-home businesses.

Sweets and Cakes

Who doesn’t love sweets and cakes? A delicious cupcake will always go down well! What’s good about this option is that you don’t need any specialist equipment, just skills. Unlike other foods, homemade sweets are more than capable of competing with products from bigger brands. After all, freshness is key. To sell these items, it’s best to start by renting a stall at a market. Once you’ve got good customer feedback, you can consider selling online/offering delivery.

Hot Sauce

There’s a big market for hot sauce. If you’re a hot sauce expert, then consider making your own — it’s a lot easier than you might think! Plus, fans of hot sauces love to try new options, so you should have a ready-made audience, especially if you live in a place where spicy dishes are popular. You don’t need to worry about what the sauce looks like (within reason), but you will need to consider bottle presentation. Designing and printing custom labels with your branding and information about the ingredients/heat level will give your sauce a professional look. As well as selling your bottles online, take a look if there are any hot sauce festivals taking place nearby — given the immense popularity of hot sauces in recent years, there probably will be.

Baked Bread

There’s nothing better than a fresh loaf of bread. Alas, many people in the United States find it difficult to find such bread — there just aren’t that many producers of quality bread in North America! If you can perfect your loaf, then you’ll have something that many people will want, even if they don’t fully realize it yet. As with cupcakes, it’s best to look at selling local food markets first. Offering a free sample can help show people just how delicious Paris-worthy bread can be.


Another option is to look at offering delivered lunches to workers in your local area. This is generally more profitable than the other options we’ve included in this list, and you really only need a few great lunch ideas to get started. So long as you can make and deliver the goods by lunchtime, then you should find plenty of interest. Partnering with coworking spaces and other offices to offer a discount can be a good way to get your first orders.
