There are over 6000 retail bakeries in the United States that generate annual combined revenue of over $3.8 billion. Additionally, many grocery retailers operate their own bakeries inside their stores rather than buy from wholesale commercial bakeries. While the commercial side of the business is dominated by large scale operators the retail side of the business is still mostly small to medium size independent stores and is a growing segment of the food retailing and grocery industries. Combination bakery and coffee shops or cafes that not only employ bakers but baristas as well have enjoyed strong growth in recent years. This is due the combining the strong growth of the retail coffee industry with the growth in the fresh prepared foods industry. Another popular combination business is the deli bakery. Offering both baked goods and sandwiches. As with most retail store businesses the path to success includes providing high quality product with personal service in a welcoming and professionally interior designed retail environment. Successful bakery decor and bakery interior design ideas go a long way in helping to make bakery retailing profitable.
The top baking trends for retail bakeries continue to be the use of natural ingredients or “naked cakes”, gluten free breads and rolls, South American recipes and retro or vintage recipes. Also growing in popularity is “fresh at your convenience” baked items that are par-baked and then finish baked at the shopper’s convenience in their homes. Artisnal breads have experienced double digit growth. These can be old world loaves, ethnic recipes or non-traditional ingredient breads and rolls.
As anyone who has ever run a retail bakery store knows the hours can be long and stressful because bakers usually operate under strict deadlines and with time-sensitive recipes. Bakers spend many hours managing their businesses from a financial perspective to pay invoices and payroll, ordering supplies and trying to maintain profitability. Because of all this activity sometimes the way the store looks doesn’t get as much attention as it may need. Bakery interior design and signage helps create your bakery brand identity. It can convey to shoppers what you stand for and how you’re different from the competition. In store signage can also be used to advertise your promotions, prices, types of baked goods offered and what ingredients were used or how to serve the items at home.
