In the last 365 days or more, I’ve watched retailers queue and struggle to buy bread from bread sellers. Some days many will not be able to buy and on some days, they will be met with the disappointment of waiting.
This observation gave me an insight into opening a bakery business, but I do not have the required skills and passion to venture into it. Someone within my business locality took advantage of it and opened a bakery business that is flourishing today.
A bakery business is lucrative if your products are of quality because I don’t eat any how bread and people don’t also. To make your business flourish, your products must stand out. Consider the quality of bread produced by some fast food companies like Hoeffers, Genesis, etc.
Many times when you go to buy bread at Shoprite, you’ll be in a queue. This tells you that the demand for bread is high if the quality is acceptable.
