The rise of bake & TAKE

This is your chance to join Europe’s Award Winning Franchise.

New to the UK, bake & TAKE is a sophisticated self-service European-inspired cafe. The brand originates from Germany, where it is known as backWERK, with 320 well-established Franchise cafes across Germany, Switzerland, Austria and The Netherlands.

Our franchise exists to fulfil a gap in the market and provide our customers with high quality, freshly prepared range of up to 250 different products. bake&Take would provide the right partners with a fantastic opportunity to grow a business that would meet all aspirations within their given area where other food franchises have little or no choice of territories to offer.

Robin Page and Steve Mahon, own the Master rights for the UK and N Ireland.

Their flagship store in Greater Manchester, has been tailored from the German model to suit the UK market and is trading ahead of budget.

The pair, who both boast a formidable background in retail and franchising having held director roles at Argos, Littlewoods, Wine Cellar and Cash Generator are privately funding the joint venture and have dynamic plans for the business. See LinkedIn for their profiles.

Robin says “We have spent the last 12 months putting the infrastructure in place and with a significant investment of more than £1million, we are now ready to launch the Franchise bake & TAKE in the UK”

The bake & TAKE model is truly unique to the UK, combining superb coffee from with an impressive selection of delicious savoury and sweet bakery products. From illy coffee to a Kaiser roll and Turkish flatbread, bake & TAKE’s continental-style deli, with its modern European design, is sure to charm consumers across the UK.

Robin added “There are plenty of coffee shops and bakeries in the UK, but there is nothing like bake & TAKE. The self-service angle combined with the comprehensive cosmopolitan menu which focuses on freshness and affordability really sets bake & TAKE apart”.

Dependent on the location and size of the café, each bake & TAKE store has the potential to turnover between £300,000 and £1million per annum, which makes it a most attractive business proposition for potential franchisees

Robin and Steve would like to hear from people who would like to be owner occupiers and entrepreneurs who would like to open multiple stores in a given area.

Robin and Steve really are behind the rise of bake & TAKE in the UK, with targets of 10 cafes in the next 12 months, reaching 150 stores within 5 years
