BAKERY/PASTRY BUSINESS PLAN IN NIGERIA
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY FOR BAKERY/PASTRY BUSINESS PLAN IN NIGERIA
There is a shortage of bakeries where customers can get freshly baked pastries in a higher income market in Ile-Ife Osun state.
This is a university environment filled with students in need of fast food and snacks.
SINGLEBITE Bakery is proposing to offer just about the best and perfect solution in this environment by having a bakery located at No 55 ibaka street, opposite University Gate.
SINGLEBITE will offer different types of bread and sandwiches in addition to quality pastries.
We will also make up custom orders for special occasions (such as weddings, baptisms, birthdays, and corporate events) for our customers.
This business idea was created by two partners who met in a business seminar 5 years ago and got to know that they share a common goal that is service to humanity by eradicating hunger through easy to come by and affordable bread.
They both have the qualifications and experience necessary to set up the business
.Mr Ajileye graduated with a Professional Baker’s Certificate and has 10 years of experience in the bakery industry while Mr Richard holds a Master’s degree in pastry making and has 11 years of experience in the field.
SINGLEBITE will be a limited liability company, to which Mr Richard will be the CEO and Mr Ajileye will assume the role of Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Mr Richard will own 60% of the company, while Mr Ajileye will own 40%.
We believe that our prime location and the quality of our products should enable us to build a loyal customer base in the local market.
The biggest age group in the town is 20 – 24 year old
Ile-Ife young population can be explained in particular by the presence of students from Obafemi Awolowo University.
Its location near the park and access to neighboring towns also provides an opportunity for businesses to target professionals travelling to and also in the opposite direction.
The township is a commuter town, popular amongst families and young professionals, so a bakery would well serve the needs of those living there.
The company will focus on European Style; naturally leavened breads made with high quality ingredients. Breads will be baked and sold at a storefront facility using a 4 deck, steam injected bread oven.
Labour saving devices will allow the proprietor to run the entire operation with the help of two part time, seasonal employees.
SINGLEBITE main competition includes a restaurant and four bread stalls in the University area.
Its advantage lies in the high quality of its products due to specialization and artisan manufacturing.
The main marketing focus will be an eye catching sign, the scent of fresh bread wafting out of the storefront, and periodic printed advertisements.
The company will sample its products liberally.
After establishing the operation, the company will explore the possibility of making takeout sandwiches.
Delivering wholesale bread and baked goods to area restaurants and specialty retailers will also be considered.
Major costs to start this business include equipment purchases, shop rent, ingredient purchases, site modifications, and marketing, which total N500,000.
Opening day is scheduled for Aug 30th.
While SINGLEBITE has the potential for high growth, the first two years will be spent establishing company financial stability and increasing market share.
Production of sellable breads is projected to begin on Aug 30 2022. Raw ingredients will be ordered for locally twice a month delivery from Tisco Farm.
