There are many types of bakery operations, some specialized for a specific kind of bread or pastry product, and some that turn out a wide range of breads and pastries. Smaller shops do retail only sales; others, like New Yorker, do entirely wholesale business.
Then there is the retail bakery that doesn’t actually do any of its baking in-house, but buys from wholesalers. These can offer “fresh” baked bread and pastries to their busy customers if they have a wholesaler that bakes and delivers fresh goods every morning.
Finally, there’s the small bakery that offers a range of fresh baked goods that are prepared in-house, and wants to expand into new varieties. Perhaps a doughnut shop wants to cater to a more health conscious crowd, in which case stocking alternative breakfast foods would be of assistance.
Bagels are one of the most popular healthy choices, but a doughnut store doesn’t have the equipment to make bagels. Setting up to make bagels the proper, old fashioned will can be expensive and time consuming, not to mention the space you’d need for new equipment and the proofing process.
The answer? A wholesale bagel bakery can be used to deliver fresh, authentic New York bagels each day, enabling every retailer to expand their offerings with a minimal time and cost investment.
New Yorker bagels come in a wide range of flavors, and in a variety of sizes, from large bagels to mini-bagels that hark back to a time when the “roll with a hole” was a smaller, chewier snack instead of the massive round that most consumers expect today.
A quality wholesale bagel bakery will be equipped for baking bagels the traditional way, proofing and steaming them before baking in a high heat oven for the favored crunchy exterior and chewy interior New York bagel lovers are accustomed to.
Operating a retail bakery has many advantages and its share of challenges as well. When you own a retail shop, you can’t always anticipate the exact number of each kind of item you will need each day. Having a reputable wholesale bagel baker who delivers daily will allow you to tweak your order when needed. We’re here to help!
