Franchise of a bakery business requires low investment yet it reaps high profits. A franchisee can specialise in baking mouth watering products like pastries, cakes, biscuits, breads, donuts, muffins, pies, cookies and lots of other things.

Prominent Players

Most of the renowned bakery players such as Cookie Man, Mr Brown, Cinnabon, Daily Breads, Muffins, Monginis and many others are expanding pan India and across the globe through franchise route.  The expansion of these brands is providing ample opportunities to young aspirants to get started and earn good profits. According to Kaushik Roy, CEO, Daily Breads Gourmet Food I Pvt. Ltd, "Scope of expansion through franchising is rapid than through company-run outlets. Franchisees contribute towards the capital, and the motivational contributions are higher since the franchisee earns from the business."

Ingredients to be a successful franchisee

As a franchisee you have to recognise this fact that you cannot rely solely on the brand name, you have to work hard to retain your customers. So, dedication and hard work are two important key points that help you reap the benefits of success. The franchisors usually provide their franchisees with a well established brand name, number of secret recipes, training, guidance and support for marketing and advertising. So, even if you are a novice in the bakery industry, you do not have to worry. As SBP Pattabhi Rao, President, Cookie Man says, “We help our franchisees in every step possible to ensure that every retail store has a smooth operation and operates as a profit centre.”

Gratifying consumers’ needs and wants

It is essential for the franchisees to keep themselves up-to-date regarding the new trends and techniques to bake delicious products. It is a perfect business for those who are really interested in establishing a business in food industry. As a franchisee, it is very important to learn the food safety measures, health and hygiene, and safety issues of your work place. This not only helps you to get a hold on your bakery business but also allows you to concentrate on the quality production of goods that is the key to make your customers happy.

Owning a bakery franchise can be motivating and gratifying only if you can invest not only your valuable money but also your priceless time and effort in it. It is a great business that will not only suffice your taste buds but also produce sumptuous profits.
