How likely would you be to order cookies/sweets online from nut-free facility?

Hello,

My daughter was diagnosed with her peanut and tree nut allergy at age 1. She is now 8 years old. I have been making so many things from scratch because I don't like her missing out on all of the deliciousness out there! She has yet to have a reaction, and I'm very grateful for that.

Since I have been cooking and baking everything nut-free for so long, I am thinking about starting a business, local and online, selling mostly gourmet cookies, quick bread, granola bars, and chocolate candy. I live in Arizona and can do this pretty easily with the new Cottage Food Law, but am still working on all of the legal stuff.

I plan to list ingredients on my website and provide proper documentation from suppliers with allergen information. If I cannot obtain proper documentation then I will not use that product because I don't agree with some companies "washing" their facilities and saying it should be fine.

This business would be completely nut-free. However, I have every intention to use gluten, dairy, eggs and soy. I may venture into some vegan options. I also plan to incorporate cookies for the adult palette as well as cookies for everyone. By adult palette, I mean a dark chocolate blueberry port cookie, or strawberries and champagne cookie.

I am interested in feedback from members here to see if you feel there is a demand for this type of business and if you would potentially shop there. I know I am thankful for Vermont Nut-free Chocolates for supplying me with high quality chocolate, and I don't know what I'd do without that option.

Thanks for reading and I appreciate any advice, questions, and comments.

Chris
