Already run a cake shop and looking for a way to take it to the next level?
Let’s work together!
We can help you offer something different which will make you and your shop really stand out from the crowd. As long as your shop is large enough, and in a suitable location, we would be more than happy to discuss redeveloping your location into a new and promising franchise with huge potential for growth.
Is there an Ideal Eggless Cake Shop Franchisee?
Successful Eggless Cake Shop franchisees come in all shapes and sizes, and there’s no one single recipe for who makes for a successful partner.
The MOST important thing to understand is that you do not need to be an experienced baker, or even know how to bake a cake at all. All of our cake bases are made for you and delivered fresh every morning. All you have to do is ice and decorate them, and our training will make you an expert.
It is, however, vitally important is that you have a passion for all things cake related, and a commitment to delivering fantastic customer service.

What’s my investment?
The franchise fee is just £10,000 (plus VAT), but with a deposit of just £5,000 we can get started. The balance (plus VAT) of the franchise fee must be paid upon signature of the Franchise Agreement.
There are a number of other costs to consider, such as leasing and outfitting your site, business insurance, legal fees etc. These costs will vary from location to location, but we have prepared a detailed breakdown based on our current outlets which we are happy to discuss further with you.
The initial franchise agreement lasts for five years, which is renewable subject to certain criteria being met by the franchisee and in agreement with the franchisor.
Funding the dream…
Franchising is one of the safest and most secure ways of starting your own business, so many lenders are much more inclined to lend you money against your investment. There are also government funded loans which could be available; we would be happy to point you in the right direction for more information.
You will need to make sure you have enough working capital available to you to cover hiring staff, purchasing supplies and day-to-day costs while you build up your business, but we are on hand to help you assess these costs as part of your business planning should you decide to join us.
What’s my earning potential?
An Eggless Cake Shop franchise has great potential for bringing you a rapid and substantial return on your investment thanks to its low start-up costs, and low operational overheads. Many of our franchisees enjoy a profit margin of between 22% and 26%.
Obviously exactly how much you can expect to earn from your franchise will vary a great deal, based on a variety of factors such as location and the local market. But, based upon our experience to date, a well-performing shop can expect to enjoy operating profits between £45 – £65,000 by the end of Year One*.
*These figures are for illustration purposes only. Once you have signed a non-disclosure agreement, we will be able to share more in-depth financial data from our current operations and help you more accurately assess the earning potential of your proposed location.
