Texans Created Over A Thousand Local Businesses After Texas Eased Restrictions On Selling Food Made At Home

Free. Market.

Come and bake it.

Texas is enjoying a burst of entrepreneurship after enacting laws that let anyone turn a home kitchen into a business incubator. Under “cottage food” laws, people can sell food baked or cooked at home, like cookies, cakes and jams, if it’s deemed to have a very low chance of causing foodborne illnesses. Crucially, cottage food laws exempt home bakers from having to rent commercial kitchen space.

This is what deregulation does. Takes away the mechanism for a government-sponsored-special-interest-funded monopoly to control an industry. Let people sort out the winners and losers. Sad that wordplay in this country has made the idea a curse word to most on the left that hate big business and want to “end monopolies”.
