At Breadsmith, we feel our proven systems and recipes can allow you to flex your entrepreneurial spirit within the framework of our brand, to create a business opportunity that will both excite you and fulfill you. Here you will find the ten steps necessary to opening a Breadsmith.
Step 1: Fall in love
Imagine owning a business where you can go to the shop every day and know you are producing only the highest-quality, industry-leading products, as well as playing an active role in your community. By owning and operating a Breadsmith, you will be able to accomplish all of this while living your dream of owning your own business and being your own boss.
The Breadsmith concept is one that offers you many advantages over other business opportunities that you may be researching. From our time-honored traditions to our award-winning recipes, we can provide you with the tools necessary to create a successful business for years to come.
In countries all over the world, the baker is a symbol of everything that is good about a community and at Breadsmith we are no different. Our Breadsmith franchisees operate as independently owned and operated bakeries in their neighborhoods. You will not be seen as a franchised shop, but as a local businessman or woman from the area, who has decided to open a business in their community. That allows you to blend into the fabric of the community and build relationships with your customers that only locals can build. As a result, your customers will be some of the most loyal any business could ask for.
Your customers will love the award-winning breads and sweets you produce on a daily basis. Because you will make your products from scratch every day, locals will learn that they can count on you to provide them with a fresh, wholesome, staple product, free of any additives or preservatives. With over 125 different products to choose from, your store is sure to be popular with customers of any age or ethnic background.
A sense of community is a core value at Breadsmith and your neighborhood will benefit greatly from your store. The average Breadsmith participates in a fundraiser each month and donates over 15,000 pounds of food to local shelters, churches, and food pantries every year. It's easy to see how Breadsmith makes a difference in the community.
In a world where quality and convenience have become essential traits of a successful company, Breadsmith allows multiple revenue streams to enhance your ability to drive sales. While a successful retail store is a must, many Breadsmith stores take advantage of opportunities to sell to local restaurants and grocery stores, increasing their potential revenues by as much as 300%.
If you like what you've heard so far, we've saved the best news for last. Owning a Breadsmith is a demanding and highly-skilled, hands-on business opportunity and one that isn't right for most people. How is that good news, you ask? Well, unlike most businesses, our model is very difficult to duplicate and our specialized techniques are time-consuming to learn, making it unlikely that your success will encourage much competition. You will be free to enjoy the fruits of your labor without much fear of someone coming in and stealing your success.
We hope you enjoy learning more about Breadsmith and look forward to meeting you in the near future.
