Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Farretti Bakery (Petworth franchise), the brand originally established itself 14 years ago by our client who later streamlined the business model 8 years ago to include the Ciabatta based product only.

This original business is now been sold as the first franchise opportunity and includes 40 customers generating a turnover of around £72,000. Our client will concentrate on building the brand into other areas around the country.

Farretti is a small luxury bakery concept producing handmade, authentic, Italian slow fermented Ciabatta bread. Based on the original recipe of the late Dr Cavallari, our clients attention to detail and perfection for quality is now complete. She is now ready to handover the full operational Franchise to any new buyer which will include full training and support.

This franchise currently supplies around 40 customers within a 30-mile radius which includes farm shops, greengrocers, butchers, village shops, deli’s and cafes.

The bread is such a high quality that it concentrates on supply to retailers rather than cafes. Our client informs us most customers apply a 40% mark up on the cost price which starts at £2 for a plain ciabatta loaf to £2.50 for an olive ciabatta loaf.

The beauty of this franchise is its simplicity, our client chooses to only operate 3 days a week with small team for support and personally only spends 1-2 days on site to assist. Any new buyer could very easily increase current production levels by adding more customers or if they choose to reduce staffing costs carry out more hours on site or carrying out the weekly deliveries.

Current production plan -

Tuesday - Preparing dough for following day baking
Wednesday - Baking, cutting and packing day
Thursday - Delivery day

Our client runs the business to suit and identifies that many new opportunities are not been undertaken such as supplying food festivals, markets and events as well as approaching new grocery chains and restaurants concentrating on local, traceable suppliers.

The franchise running costs are very low and it is possible to generate an adjusted net profit in the region of 60%! The business benefits from 5-star reviews.

The opportunity would suit any individual looking to run a business where the passion and emotion for quality is the main focus. The support and training from our client will ensure any new franchise owner will be fully supported on their journey to success.

*Ongoing Franchise cost to be confirmed.
