Why do you suggest prospective franchisees to enter a bakery/café business?
I believe QSR is the need of the hour. The bakery industry has achieved third position in generating revenues. The growth of bakery products has been tremendous in both urban and rural areas.
Following are my reasons to start a Bakery / Café:
· Faster turnover. A start up bakery has an advantage cost over other restaurants in the local market.
· Bakeries / café have higher table turnover rates than restaurants which means you can serve more customers with fewer square feet area.
· Fewer employees. Bakeries can operate with little staff.
· Bakery / café’s have an individual approach to the customers.
What are your expansion plans for 2014?
Currently we have five franchise outlets and we plan to open at least ten more outlets by this year end across India.
