Business Overview

TASTY OPPORTUNITY – We are pleased to offer for sale a Franchised French Macaron Bakery that opened in Denton County Texas in June 2017. The franchisor began sharing their delectable macarons in 2009 with the American consumer market and opened their first retail location during that year. Because of the frequent requests from customers to open a pastry shop like theirs in their community the company began franchising in 2012.
Their niche concept is unique, with very limited competition. Today’s consumers are eager to engage with their food in new, creative ways. They want flavor and texture, quality, and presentation; they are more health conscience. Each of their signature pastries is handcrafted by our team of French chefs in their commissary. Their true French macaron is made with the finest gluten-free ingredients, no preservatives and is about 80 calories each. Beyond the signature macarons, their menu includes gourmet chocolates, French gelato, classic French pastries, European style beverages and homemade candies. The bakery has a modern European design with no on-site baking providing refined operations so minimal staffing is required. The streamlined business model provides time to focus on excellence in customer service and opportunities for additional avenues of revenue.
The business has positive cash flow and is a turn-key operation in a highly visited mall location. The franchisor has been opening units across the US and has earned numerous awards.

Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?

There are all sorts of reasons why people resolve to sell operating businesses. However, the true reason and the one they tell you might be 2 totally different things. For instance, they may claim "I have too many various obligations" or "I am retiring". For lots of sellers, these factors are valid. But, for some, these might simply be excuses to attempt to hide the reality of altering demographics, increased competitors, recent reduction in incomes, or a variety of various other reasons. This is why it is extremely important that you not depend absolutely on a seller's word, but instead, utilize the seller's response in conjunction with your general due diligence. This will paint an extra practical picture of the business's present circumstance.

Existing Debts and Future Obligations

If the existing entity is in debt, which numerous businesses are, then you will certainly have reason to consider this when valuating/preparing your deal. Numerous operating businesses finance loans with the purpose of covering items like inventory, payroll, accounts payable, and so on. Bear in mind that in some cases this can mean that profit margins are too tight. Lots of businesses come under a revolving door of taking loans as a way to pay back various other loans. In addition to debts, there may additionally be future commitments to take into consideration. There may be an outstanding lease on tools or the structure where the business resides. The business might have existing contracts with suppliers that must be satisfied or might lead to charges if terminated early.

Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics

Exactly how do operating businesses in the area attract new clients? Most times, operating businesses have repeat consumers, which form the core of their day-to-day earnings. Certain factors such as brand-new competitors sprouting up around the location, road construction, and also employee turnover can impact repeat clients as well as adversely affect future earnings. One crucial thing to think about is the location of the business. Is it in an extremely trafficked shopping center, or is it hidden from the main road? Clearly, the more people that see the business on a regular basis, the greater the opportunity to construct a returning consumer base. A last thought is the general area demographics. Is the business placed in a largely populated city, or is it located on the edge of town? Just how might the local median home income effect future income prospects?
