Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Entrepreneurs looking to invest in a regional bagel business should look no further than Barry Bagels. The breakfast franchise has been around for over five decades and has more than a dozen locations throughout Michigan and Ohio. The brand began to offer franchised locations in 2013. Barry Bagels boils and bakes its bagels fresh in small batches throughout the day to assure the best tasting, freshest products for the customers. Franchisees benefit from three revenue streams: dine in, carry out, and third-party delivery orders. Catering is also available for events including deli trays for tailgates, weddings, funerals, and parties. Barry Bagels products can also be wholesaled daily to schools, universities, hospitals, office complexes, local coffee shops, and more. A way that the brand stays ahead of the curve is to continuously evaluate new technology to improve its procedures and systems. You will also be provided with great support and training.
In terms of support and training, franchise owners will be guided by the franchisor from start to finish. In addition to a comprehensive training program, franchise owners will be provided with site selection and grand opening assistance as well as access to approved suppliers and distributors lists. These lists include key inventory items and proprietary food products, such as bagels and cream cheese. The support and training will be ongoing. Candidates can expect an initial investment that ranges between $99,000 and $514,000, which includes an initial franchise fee of between $20,000 and $25,000. The royalty fee is 6%.
