About Chock Shop
Franchise

If you are looking for a franchise, why not look at one where there is a guaranteed market!

This can be at food festivals, markets and other live events which offer the perfect opportunity to share the love for Chock Shop brownies.

As more traditional dessert foods have become replaced by American-style cookies, cakes and muffins, our market has grown. The UK bakery sector was valued at £3.6bn in 2015, with UK consumers buying over 1.5 billion sweet baked items, such as cakes, cookies, brownies, doughnuts, etc. This represented a 5.5% increase over the previous year.

Our growing appetite for baked goodies is reflected in increasing content in the media, through shows such as The Great British Bake Off helping to raise the profile of high quality baked goods.

The ideal Chock Shop franchisee

Take the risk out of business failure!

While there can be no guarantees and hard work is needed, our business model can generate earnings with almost immediate effect. Franchisees who follow our prescribed systems stand to make a profit quickly.

Are you a suitable franchisee?

Ideal candidates enjoy working in an outdoor environment and have a range of practical skills. They thrive off meeting people in shows and other events whatever the weather.

Selling brownies in summer is wonderful, but the process can become more testing during the winter months. Franchisees must be resourceful, energetic and great with customers through every season.

Success will rely on your planning, organisation and self-drive. We will provide continual assistance to help you ride out the challenges you meet as a franchisee, but you must be ready to work to develop and maintain the business. 

How much can I earn?

Our experience shows that potential income generated by the Chock Shop franchise represents an excellent return. When we meet we will have the opportunity to discuss sales and finances in far greater detail. However, as a guide we estimate an operating profit (before tax) to total over £40,000 in year 1 - £50,000+ in Year 2 and over £70,000 in Year 3. 

This is profit, not turnover! How about that for a healthy return on investment!

Chock Shop's history

Like all the greatest creations, Chock Shop is a simple idea carried out with a lot of love.

The company began when founder, Greg Shearman, poured his passion for baking into creating the very best brownies he could. He didn’t just scour delicatessens to source the finest ingredients, Greg made sure these brownies were seriously fresh – handmade, hand-cut and hand decorated.

Customers couldn’t get enough, and soon Chock Shop’s famous artisan brownies were causing queues at festivals and markets up and down the country.

THE BEST BROWNIES AROUND, ’COS THE BEST BROWNIES ARE ROUND!

We’re not just about delicious word play – Chock Shop brownies are round for a very good reason.

Brownies are traditionally baked in rectangular trays and cut in the same shape. But this means someone always gets the harder outside edge, and we know you want the best bit!

That’s why at Chock Shop we use a circular cutter to guarantee that every customer gets the heart of the brownie – the sweetest, softest and warmest piece available. Although a bit crumblier, the outside bits still taste amazing and bring the fabulous bite to our Rocky Road brownies that customers go crazy for.

We’re currently expanding, so look out for Chock Shop at food festivals, markets and open-air shows around the country.

Chock Shop also caters privately, making mouths water at weddings, birthdays, corporate events and more.
