With a cupcake franchise, not only can you make people happy but you can become an integral part of the community. The Smallcakes Cupcakery and Creamery franchise specializes in gourmet cupcakes that are presented in the brand’s signature pink box. The cupcake business was established by Jeff Martin in 2008. Since then, the cupcake brand has expanded to more than 200 locations around the world. There are single and multi-unit deals for qualified candidates. Smallckaes’ claim to fame is being featured on “Cupcake Wars” and “The View.” Customers can’t get enough of the cupcake franchise’s 18 signature flavors that are freshly baked every morning. These flavors include chocolate cream, peanut butter cup, pink chocolate, cookies-n-cream, and lemon drop. Customers can also enjoy the brand’s ice cream, such as vanilla bean, salted caramel, birthday cake, and chocoholic. As a franchise owner, you benefit from low labor and startup costs and a small retail footprint. First responders and veterans receive discounts on the initial franchise fee. As a franchisee, you also have the opportunity to design your own store, which most business owners can't do.
You will also appreciate great support and training. In terms of support and training, you can expect an initial training program that is broken down into classroom and on-the-job instruction to explain everything you to know about running the business, including sales, hiring, and more. This support and training is ongoing. You can also expect an initial investment: that ranges between $70,000 – $120,000, and a franchise fee of $30,000. The franchise fee is 4%.
