Believe it or not, it’s possible for baker tenants.
Does leasing a larger commercial space lead to increased business? Not necessarily! In fact, bakery tenants often find that a larger commercial space results in a bigger problem that they are not profiting. When they come to The Lease Coach stating that they are not making any money because their rent is too high we have often discovered that, more often than not, the baker has simply leased too many square feet.
Should you automatically agree to the same terms and conditions when you renew your lease as you accepted when you first signed?

Passing a health and safety inspection is just the beginning.
When customers walk into your bakery, they immediately begin to form opinions about whether they like it, and whether they plan to return before even tasting any of your food products. They base all their opinions simply by judging your operation from its look, ambiance and atmosphere.
Depending upon which side of the fence you sit when it comes to designing your bakery’s kitchen, you will either choose the right equipment for the space or the right space for the equipment.
Warming temperatures and longer days mean that spring is in the air.

The clink of a delicate teacup being placed on its matching china saucer, the aroma of steeped tea as it is poured, the taste of a freshly baked scone melting in your mouth: it’s no wonder afternoon tea has been rising in popularity across the globe.

Feeling drab? Here are eight great ways to spruce up your space without breaking the bank
Too many cooks spoil the broth, but some occasions call for an extra cook in the kitchen.
As a baker, your reputation is only as good as the quality of your products. That is why your business simply can’t afford to be associated with anything that would jeopardize consumer confidence, including a fly infestation.
