Julie Bake Shop - A Popular Retail Bakery Chain In Philippines

As I was  enquiring about Philippines bakery industry  one of the news which drew my attention was  an expansion plan of  retail bakery chain named " Julie  Bake Shop ". With  quality products catering to local filipino taste it has made a mark on country bakery market. The country’s largest bakery chain, Julie’s Bakeshop, is adding another 60 outlets to its more than 600-strong branch network next year, as the industry
recovers from the effects of the global recession.
In an interview with  reporters
, Julie’s Franchise Corp. president and CEO Joseph Gandionco said the majority of the new branches would be in Luzon and Mindanao, as the Visayas market was now saturated.
As with the current mix, most of the new outlets would be owned by franchisees, he said. Of the more than 600 Julie’s Bakeshop branches nationwide, about 40 percent are company-owned, while the rest are owned by franchisees.Each Julie’s Bakeshop franchise costs P2.2 million, including equipment, seminars, and hands-on training.

A Brief History
The first Julie’s Bakeshop stood in Mandaue City in January 1981. The woman behind the bakeshop chain, Julie Gandioco decided to put up the store to meet the growing demand for bread in her canteen in a rattan furtiture company.

Success proved to be handy for Julie’s Bakeshop that after only six months, the second store was opened in the province.

Then the pursuit to put the company in stronger footing started. In 1984, RJ Commodities was established as a central warehouse for Julie’s Bakeshop to ensure the steady supply of quality ingredients and bakery supplies for the business. Its main operations were initially put up in Visayas and Mindano.

Further in its successful timeline is the opening of a store in Iloilo, its first store outside Cebu, in 1988.

Julie’s Bakeshop has a vision to “be in every town and be the most sought-after Food Franchising Company maintaining leadership in the neighborhood bakeshop market.” This in a bid to address the growing demand for quality bread.Julie’s Bakeshop now has over 500 branches and outlets nationwide and close to 180 franchisees – a testament that the company indeed has molded breads that will bring entrepreneurial success.

“Julie’s Bakeshop offers freshly baked bread made from the finest ingredients. Julie’s products are produced in a clean environment, in full view of its customers. Its products are not only tasty but very much affordable,” the company said in an email to Magnegosyo.com.

Julie’s Bakeshop noted that they keep loyal clients and attract new patrons by maintaining the high standards of quality in both the products and service.

Julie’s Bakeshop now offers franchise opportunities to budding entrepreneurs who see light and flavor in the bread business network. The company noted that enterprise creation and employment opportunities were their motivation to officially go into franchising.

NEW YORK


Bakeries across New York and the rest of the country are finding out that cupcakes can equal cash.

For Emma Simon, happiness is a red velvet cupcake.

"She'll gobble up the frosting, and then she'll eat the rest of the cupcake," Emma's mother, Anna Coatsworth, said. Cupcakes are whipping up an international frenzy.

Specialty shops are multiplying, and the bad economy is feeding the craving. For a recession-weary public, the humble cupcake is a sweet – and affordable – escape.

"We were really something they could hold onto with a little nostalgia and a little bit of comfort," Steve Abrams, owner of Magnolia Bakery in New York City, said.


Abrams expanded from the original location in 2008, and is now up to four New York bakeries – plus one in Dubai. "We get requests every day from all over the world for franchises," Abrams says.

Each shop bakes about 5,000 cupcakes each day, and a mail order business is in the works. All told, sales this year could hit $20 million.


That kind of success is hard to ignore, which is why there's suddenly more competition than ever fighting for a piece of the pie.

Godiva has been selling chocolates for the better part of a century. Now, it's selling cupcakes by mail order.


Even the White House has discovered Washington's Georgetown Cupcake. Two sisters started the business in 2008, hoping to sell 100 cupcakes a day. On Valentine's Day, they cranked out 25,000.

"It's fantastic – we couldn't imagine doing anything else," co-owner Sophie LaMontagne said.


In fact, they don't have time to do anything else. In addition to their two stores, the sisters have started their own mail order service, shipping well over 1,000 cupcakes each day.


Cupcakes are a $6 billion industry. The famous Magnolia Bakery gets about five franchise requests a day from as far away as India and Kuwait, but Magnolia has no plans to franchise – at least, not yet.

Bakery Cafes are profitable business - A survey

Bakery Cafe s have reported spectacular growth in  recent  economic slowdown .Manufacturing has been hit by the cost escalation how ever  the bakery cafes  are in expansion mode . A recent survey by  Technomic tells us all.

According to Technomic’s new study, the 2009 Technomic Top 25 Bakery Cafe Chains Restaurant Report, system-wide sales for the bakery-café industry grew 12 percent in 2008 to $4.5 billion, led by Panera Bread, Einstein Bros. Bagels and Au Bon Pain, with $2.6 billion, $393 million and $307 million respectively.




"The consumer trade-down from full-service to limited-service formats that solidified through 2008 and into 2009 allowed fast-casual bakery cafes to truly shine," said Darren Tristano, executive vice president at Technomic. "The appeal of moderately priced, high-quality menu offerings served in contemporary ambiance, as well as consumer perception of value for this format, has more than likely strengthened over the past year."



Among the trends, products, and findings included in the report:



Health and nutrition: Einstein Bros. Bagels' Lighter Fare Menus.

Expansion of breakfast offerings: Atlanta Bread Company, Corner Bakery Café, and Panera Bread.

Revamped catering programs: Au Bon Pain's Hot Lunch line.

Value equation: La Madeleine's Choose Two Menu, Einstein Bros. Bagels' Snack-Out menu, Au Bon Pain's small-bite Portions menu.

Nontraditional sites and urban locations: airports, college campuses, military bases, medical centers and hotels.

Social media: use of Facebook and Twitter to promote new and limited-time offerings.

Bakery cafe chains' units expanded by 6.6 percent to 3,107 locations.

Paradise Bakery & Cafe was the sales growth leader at 30.7 percent. Le Pain Quotidien was the leader in store count growth rate at 29.6 percent.
