At the initial stage, the required investment can be up to $ 30,000. This includes the procurement of necessary equipment (cookers, kneading, pastry tables, etc.), rent an area of at least 200 m ², purchase of raw materials and design and the documentation cost. In addition, to deliver products to the point of sale cannot be done without personal vehicles. Depending on the size and locality, rental companies may charge you a couple of thousands.
Careful selection of staff to consider the product range and the number of stores is necessary. Shop may consist of 7-12 people, among them - the team of highly skilled confectioners (on which the quality of products mainly depends), the baker and his assistant, as well as account manager and customer service staff for a booking.
Need to take care of the markets. In the initial phase, when production is not very large, it is necessary to adjust work with small shops. With the expansion of the range, as well as the stabilization of production and quality control, we can start cooperation with major retail chains.
Even with its own network of stores, serial products (cakes) must be at least ¾ of the total. Many exclusive cakes made with natural products, it will be difficult to implement due to their high cost. In addition, this ratio would be best to meet the needs of most customers.
