Welcome to the Debaere Franchise opportunity
A delicious, wholesale artisan bakery.
With over 20 years of business experience, they are now sharing their luxurious company with franchisees across the UK.
Debaere was founded by Ric De Baere who is a Master Patisserie Chef from Belgium. In the late nineties, he established a small chain of coffee houses supplied by his own wholesale bakery; this is where Debaere was born. In 2000 he sold the company and naming rights to David Everton who like Ric had a passion for patisserie. His focus was on wholesale and quickly established a foothold in this area.
In 2007 the company was passed onto the two current Directors who were working for Debaere at the time. They got together to purchase the company, and to expand operations.
With a cunning eye on market trends diversified the product portfolio appealing to more customers. The turnaround came in 2012 when Debaere was able to supply cakes for the 2012 Olympic Games then in 2013 they had to get a second unit to cope with the demand all of which was coming through word of mouth.
In 2014 it became apparent that the 3,000 square feet of kitchen they had was becoming inadequate and restrictive so in 2015 they invested in a new bespoke kitchen providing 8,500 square feet of production, storage and office space.
Since then they have continued to grow and attracted new customers from an even wider base including airlines, stadiums, caterers and regional distributors.
"We were pleasantly surprised at the ease in which they handled all of our tricky obstacles in terms of delivery times and quantity. In just four weeks, our pastry sales had doubled and our customers were thoroughly impressed with the freshness and quality we had managed to obtain on a daily basis. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough and their professionalism throughout the entire company is outstanding.""- The Fifth Taste
