Some FAQs You May Have In Mind

Will these slogans work for a home bakery?

Yes. While you won’t need a catchy catchphrase for an external sign, most home-based bakeries use the same marketing channel as brick and mortar shops use… Social media. Your Instagram account is your personal PR tool. The right slogan paired with an appealing image of your baked goods is all you’ll need to build curiosity.

What are the popular ways to promote a bakery?

As mentioned in the first FAQ, one of the best ways to promote your bakery is through social media. Marketing on these platforms can be free or at least low cost to get started. Given the current environment, many customers would rather order pastries offered online that can be delivered safely to their homes.

Case Study: How a Culinary Grad Built a $26k/Month Pastry Shop

Of course, if you operate a brick and mortar bakery shop, you can still leverage the benefits of social media marketing and delivery. One timeless marketing approach that still works is to offer a limited time promotion or coupon. An easy coupon would be 25% of all cupcakes for the next 8 hours. For a promotion to work best, you’ll want to create a sense of urgency by only offering it for a limited time.

You may also make use of traditional promotional methods such as joining fairs, showcase your products through events, and even offering catering services to home and office parties. You can learn more about growing a bakery business in this episode of our podcast.

What are the most popular bakery items to sell?

  1. Miniature Cheesecake. There’s your regular cheesecake, then there’s the smaller sized cheesecake. Why you may ask? Things have changed, think of chocolates, from hand-sized bars in the 80s and the 90s, they’re now available in bite-sized, miniature variants. People tend to like smaller desserts that won’t go bad. Original and strawberry flavors tend to be the most popular variety for bakeries.
  2. Cookie Sandwiches. This is a twist to the then-popular ice cream sandwiches. These tasty treats usually consist of cream cheese or buttercream instead of ice cream, sandwiched between two chocolate chip cookies.
  3. Personal Pies. If you’re eating for only one or two people, a full pie might be too large. Personal pies usually measure four inches around and come in your regular favorites such as cherry or apple pie. Chocolate pies are also popular treats among buyers and these tasty little treats make share-worthy social media images.
  4. Blueberry Muffins. A timeless favorite. People continue to turn to this classic pastry because of its simple yet savory flavor. This is a beloved pastry for young and old.
  5. Homemade Bread. There’s nothing like feeling and tasting the warmth of freshly baked bread which can be eaten any time of the day. The rise of sourdough bread making has become stay-at-home phenomenon over the past year.

A bakery is a business in the production, importation, wholesaling, or retailing baked goods which typically include cakes, bread, pastries, cookies, crackers, and tortillas. Some of these bakeries are operated in large commercial kitchen with dozens of staff. While others are small cottage food businesses with one owner / operator baking from a home kitchen.

In the U.S., the bakery industry represents 2.1% of the country’s gross domestic product according to the American Bakers Association. The industry yields $30 billion in revenue each year. The baking industry is comprised of an estimated 3,000 commercial bakeries and 6,000 retail bakeries.
