This popular, European-style bakery has grown immensely in popularity and size in just a few short years. The recipient of numerous awards and accolades, this business offers a diverse menu including a variety of traditional breads and pastries as well as uniquely-inspired interpretations of classic bakery items, all baked on-site in their wood-fired brick oven. They offer made-to-order pizzas, too! Every item on the menu is made-from-scratch using local, primarily organic ingredients, and hand-shaped before baking.
Demand for fresh, handmade and otherwise specialty bread products is expected to increase in both retail and wholesale markets over the next five years. Furthermore, artisan bread bakeries have seen a steady increase in market share over the past five years and that growth is expected to continue. Possible growth opportunities include increased wholesaling; added product lines like espresso, sandwiches and soups; and pizza more often than Saturdays!
As a whole, the bread production industry has seen an increase in revenues in 2017 and 2018 that is expected to continue through 2023. A strong and increasing demand for specialty breads is attracting many traditional grocery stores and markets to offer specialty bread products, increasing competition; however, small retail bakeries serving local markets typically do not compete with these larger commercial bakeries and have thrived by offering fresh-baked, artisan-style breads that are not typically found in traditional grocery stores or markets. There is no better time to enter the craft-baking business than now through an established, profitable and popular artisan-bakery uniquely positioned as the only one of its kind in its market!
