Bake & Take, the German café and bakery concept, aims to open 100 new UK stores in the next five years. 

The company currently has one flagship company-owned store in Manchester, and one franchisee-owned store in Sutton. Both stock over 150 fresh bakery products, which are baked throughout the day, and “have access to over 1,000”.  The shops also serve drinks, soups and coffee, which customers select on a self-service basis.

The company has over 350 stores across five countries. It won Franchisor of the Year in 2011 and a Franchise Bakery Award in 2013.

Robin Page, UK master franchise owner at Bake & Take, said: “After two years of developing and testing our franchise product we are now in a position to fully begin the recruitment process, and the plan is to have 100 new UK stores in the next five years.

“We are actively searching for high-calibre franchise partners, and are particularly interested in hearing from multi store food or retail operators. There are also single and multi-site area development opportunities in hot spot areas in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.”
