Gigi's Cupcakes: Now is the Time to Invest
Gigi’s Cupcakes Stands Out in The Nearly $4 Billion Bakery Industry
Gigi’s Cupcakes is one of the largest and fastest-growing gourmet bakery and cupcake franchises in the United States. We offer popular desserts and delicious, beautiful, award-winning gourmet cupcakes, which are baked fresh daily in our stores. Americans consume more than 770 million cupcakes a year, and Gigi’s is gearing up to grab a larger share of this lucrative market.
Gigi’s Cupcakes franchisees have the advantage of owning a beloved business concept backed by stellar branding and delicious products that outshine our competitors’ sweet treats. We are the largest and fastest-growing bakery franchise opportunity in the United States with low startup fees as well as lower typical food and labor costs than what traditional food franchisees incur.
Owning a Gigi's
Gigi’s is an attractive franchise that offers much lower food and labor costs than traditional food franchises. We experienced double-digit System Sales Growth in 2015. How did we attain that?
- A simple, and successful, business model. The Gigi’s business model provides many off-premises opportunities, such as event catering, B2B sales and satellite store, kiosk and food truck expansion. Gigi’s has more than 300 proprietary and proven recipes, and Gigi’s franchisees do not need prior bakery experience. Staffing needs are simple, with three main employees needed: a baker, a decorator and a customer service representative.
- Technology infrastructure. Gigi’s is investing heavily in its technology infrastructure, with a revamped and easy-to-navigate website and an upgraded app, which will include a remote delivery option.
- Low operating costs. A Gigi’s Cupcakes franchise has much lower costs than average food businesses of similar size and the typical QSR in the franchise space. Space buildout costs are typically lower and food costs for running a Gigi’s are also often around 5% lower than the average food business, greatly increasing margins for the franchisees.
- Training and support from a powerhouse leadership team. Our executive team has run billion-dollar-a-year franchise systems, and we are building the infrastructure for a true national brand. Our owners go through extensive training to learn the Gigi’s way, and our marketing support ensures that the grand opening process is a success and that owners have all the support they need.
- Stellar brand recognition. Gigi’s appearance on Undercover Boss in 2015 helped elevate brand awareness. Gigi’s signature swirl, beautiful packaging and over-the-top customer service are all part of the Gigi’s way. Social media has driven brand recognition, with fans flocking to our bakery franchises.
In today's fast paced world, people don’t have time to bake from scratch. They still want the celebratory feel that cakes bring, though, and our cupcake and bakery franchise offers the convenience, variety and individual portions that make cupcakes an easy choice.
Now is the time to bring Gigi's Cupcakes to your community.
