FAQs

Q. What types of franchises are available?
A.  We are presently looking to franchise on a very limited basis, and only in certain key geographic markets.  For those markets, we are looking for established multi-unit operators who are personally and financially qualified to open and operate a minimum of 5 locations over the next 2-3 years under an Area Development Agreement.  Paradise Bakery does not sell single-unit franchises.

Q. How much is the franchise fee?
A. The Area Developer currently pays an Area Development Fee of $15,000 for the first Bakery & Cafe and $10,000 for each additional Bakery & Cafe location it agrees to develop and is payable upon the execution of the Area Development Agreement.  In addition to the Area Development Fees, a Franchise Fee of $40,000 is due for the first and second Bakery & Cafe and $25,000 is due for each subsequent Bakery & Cafe on the Area Developer's schedule, and is payable upon execution of the Franchise Agreement for each Bakery & Cafe.
