Desserts – despite all the health hype in the UK – have become increasingly vital to the British. Better still is if your treat can be served up quickly, at a convenient location and tailor-made to your specifications.
The pancake is a traditional British food, of course – there an annual day devoted to it. However, thanks to continental interest in the growing UK food service industry, it has undergone a makeover as a year round treat. There are abundant savoury variations for the crepe, too. This is why there are so many successful creperies operating pop up kiosks, carts, food trucks, takeaways and even full service restaurants.
They are cashing in on a 10% increase in the sales of sweet bakery and desserts in the UK and the £54 billion eating out market. If you fancy opening your own business serving up this versatile and delicious food, there is great news. Some of the established companies share their proven business models and respected branding; this also provides crepe franchisees with access to their loyal customer base.
There are no shortage of options if you dream of being your own boss in crepes, including European networks Crêpes de France and Crêpeaffaire. Or, you could join the team of independent entrepreneurs at the Crepe Café, Love Crepe or Maple Moose crepe and waffle bars.
Just as crepes are easy to prepare and serve – making them a highly mobile snack or meal – this is a relatively straightforward concept for a new business start up.
Franchisers provide vital packages of support, including low costs equipment and supply chains, making it far easier to build profitability. The marketing power that a crepe franchise provides is certainly important, often including a ready made website. They also give day to day help with training, compliance to food hygiene, health and safety laws, insurance and accounting.
