Eggless Cake Shop - Bakery Franchise

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.


Treat yourself to something really special; the future you’ve always wanted!

With the Eggless Cake Shop all you need is a passion for great service, and a love for sharing delicious treats! No baking experience is necessary!


Everyone loves a bit of cake – that’s why Brits spend nearly a million pounds a day, just on cake! Birthday cakes, wedding cakes, special little treats… you name it, we love cake.

Unfortunately, not everyone can just go out and buy a cake from a bakery or supermarket shelf anytime they like. Those with allergies to nuts, gluten and dairy, or those who follow a vegan lifestyle, often have incredibly limited choice when it comes to their slice of Britain’s favourite treat.

However, this opportunity is about so much more than just tapping into a niche market. More and more people are looking for free-from alternatives as part of a healthier lifestyle. This is no passing fad, but a real shift in how people think about their food, and the choices they want to make when they visit a cake shop or bakery.

An Eggless Cake Shop franchise is your opportunity to tap into a huge market which is still not properly served in most towns and cities around the country.

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.

Already running 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.


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.

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. Many lenders are much more inclined to lend you money against your investment with a franchise; there are also government funded loans which could be available, subject to status.

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.
