Bakery franchises are popular due to their feel-good product and simple business model. A regional bakery franchise to to consider is Vicky Bakery. The bakery franchise was established in 1972 by Antonio and Gelasia Cao, who are immigrants from Cuba. With more than five decades in business, Vicky Bakery has expanded to more than a dozen locations across South Florida and is looking to expand even more with franchise partners. The couple met each other while working at Cuba's famous bakery, La Vencedora. They migrated to Miami as political exiles and soon saved up enough money to buy a bakery in Hialeah. Vicky Bakery is known for its Cuban pastelito, which are made from a recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation. Customers can't get enough of the brand's confections and can appreciate its new vegan bread option.
