Food. The second word in “Bed and Breakfast” is just as important as the first. Some B&Bs have tried to serve their guests muffins, juice, and coffee in the mornings, but the most successful hosts understand that the breakfast they serve will make a lasting impression on their guests. You can get creative and serve the type of breakfast traditional for the area that you’re in. For instance, if your home is located in the South, then eggs, grits, and biscuits may go over well, while Southwest guests may appreciate a traditional Tex-Mex meal.

Home-based businesses as a group have been characterized, but little more has been done in the way of analysis. A general goal of this study is to advance the understanding of regulatory burdens on home-based businesses, as opposed to non-home-based very small businesses.
