Our macaron kiosk franchises are designed to win over the millions of customers who visit malls and other high-traffic venues across America. Our innovative and beautiful kiosks come packed with practical features, such as refrigeration and a self-contained sink, so that you can serve, store and manage your inventory with ease. WOOPS! has developed relationships with the largest mall companies in America, who are chomping at the bit for WOOPS! to enter their marketplace. Investment for a kiosk is significantly lower than that for the bakeshop franchise. It requires fewer employees and is easy to manage.
We have a limited number of bakeshops, which are stores with a footprint of 400 to 1,200 square feet that serve our complete line of more than 20 flavors of macarons, all 30+ of our international pastries, plus our branded coffee and grab-and-go sandwiches. This investment is significantly higher than for the kiosk and requires more extensive training to ensure that our franchisees get the tools to run a successful bakeshop franchise.
For a kiosk, you will only need one employee per shift. When you are first starting out, you may choose to fill this role. As you get established, we encourage you to spend most of your time away from the kiosk so you can network with other businesses and organizations in your community to build the catering and corporate gifting portions of your business.
For an in-line bakeshop, we recommend that you employ a staff of two to four people, whom you will extensively train to maintain the quality of our products, as well as to ensure that your customers have positive experiences.
