Opening a bakery is a challenge that requires planning and a lot of work. So, consider these points to open a successful bakery!
- Type of Bakery
Do you dream of opening a bakery like the one you went to as a child? Or do you have an innovative idea? You can choose to buy an existing bakery, choose a franchise or create an establishment from scratch. All these options are valid, have advantages and some specific challenges.
- Existing Bakery
- Bakery Franchisee
- New Bakery
- Bakery location
Whether you want to create a bakery from scratch or opt for a successful franchise, location is a key point. Choose a busy place, very visible and easily accessible, in an area without this type of business, is an asset.
- Business Plan
Opening a bakery involves making a business plan adjusted to your reality. Research the market and the competition and draw up a financial plan that contemplates the amount you have to invest, how much time you need to recover that amount and the profit you can have with the bakery.
- Marketing strategy
- Hiring Employees for the Bakery
Competence, taste or experience for catering, are some of the characteristics that you should look for in professionals to hire for the bakery:
- Friendliness, hospitality;
- Good customer service;
- Good interpersonal communication;

- Billing Program
To bill well and legally it is important that you have a certified billing program that meets your needs and that allows you to register and track your sales in seconds. This is the case of online billing software – which works on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, IOS, on the laptop, mobile phone and tablet.
