A friend of mine started a hot pepper seed company selling seeds (packets), plants, peppers and hot pepper foods. (www.peppernorth.com
). He gets the pepper seeds in bulk and then divides them up and creates collections since no one really needs 10,000 seeds in a box.
Seeds are a low investment item
plants can be grown on site with the ability to expand the business with a greenhouse
He started with the seeds and plants and then expanded into pre-made foods like chocolate and honey, which have a higher overhead after he established his business.
