Hipster baby Food Store

So ever since I first experienced “Baby Row” up on 4th ave in Kits, I’ve been saying to Leah that a sure-fire business idea in Vancouver would be to start a high-end baby food store on that strip in Kits. An now, yet another article detailing all the options that are now appearing for baby food.

So, if you’re looking for a good business, like babies/mothers & cooking, here’s what you should do:

  1. Stock high quality, organic brands of baby-foods.
  2. Offer daily-made, or high-quality take-away frozen meals for proto- or recent parents
  3. Offer cooking for babies courses, showing new parents how to cook meals that they and their babies can eat.
  4. Sell family-friendly/baby-friendly cookbooks
  5. Have “guest chefs” in. If possible, hook up with local celebrity chefs to have them create unique baby meals. What well-to-do Vancouverite parent wouldn’t want a Feenie purée?
  6. Possibly, and this might be diluting the brand, sell baby-food paraphenalia: bibs, cups, bowls, high chairs, etc.

So there. That’s my top-secret business idea, now laid bare for all to read and steal. Had I any time & funding, I might well do it myself. If you do take something from my idea, let me know!

  1. I’ve always had the idea of starting a pizza place in Kits that catered to people with allergies/new age diets/concerns over gm foods/interesting tastes. There would be a vast variety of crusts including rice, spelt, whole wheat, rye, and maybe some sort of sweet potato thing. The cheese could be from all sorts of different types of cow, goat, sheep, soy, or none at all. Lots of different toppings, the best olive oils, etc… See the way that I figure it is exactly like you figure it- Kits is this odd place where people have too much money to spend on things that no one else in the world would really consider (or could afford). Maybe we should both quit our current lives and build a pizza/baby store complex somewhere around Capers. What do you think?
