Today’s changing lifestyles and diets have inspired many bakers and pastry chefs to set up bakery restaurants thanks to a snack bar layout inside their locations. But that’s not all…
Some of them have supplemented their product lines with an on-site food service concept with an ambiance that reflects the image of the shop.
These snack bars serving food on the go have increased dramatically since 2014. Many independent bakers have already jumped on this bandwagon to boost their sales.
And the phenomenon only picked up speed in 2020. With the pandemic, takeaway sales really took off!

Creating real meeting places
Alongside a snack bar concept, it is important to also work on your on-premise dining concept by establishing an ambiance and a style that are specific to your shop. These meeting places are particularly popular amongst customers dining out who are looking for somewhere to go for a fast, friendly and tasty lunch break.
An additional sales tool
Some bakeries’ on-site restaurants account for as much as 35% of their turnover. When consumers were asked where they would like to be able to buy more products to eat on the go, 42% of them thought of bakeries!
