The Woops! Kiosk Model
Luxury kiosk business model is easy to run with a history of strong returns
Woops! macaron kiosks are the ideal opportunity for an aspiring entrepreneur who has always dreamed of owning a small business. With a low initial investment, Woops! macaron kiosks are easy to run and easy to scale, with minimal moving parts and a very small staff. The business already is a success in malls throughout the country, so Woops! macaron kiosks are the perfect entree into a new career as a small business owner.
Woops! macaron kiosks are custom-designed to showcase the colorful beauty of our macarons. Woops! kiosks not only look beautiful, but they also come packed with practical features such as built-in refrigeration and a self-contained sink so owners can properly serve, store and manage inventory with ease. It typically takes only 20-30 minutes to prep a Woops! macaron kiosk for a day of business.
Woops! macaron kiosk requires no baking experience
The majority of the Woops! executive team not only has significant experience in growing franchise systems, but they also have been franchisees themselves. They worked to devise a business model that requires no baking experience — only the drive to follow proven systems, manage the business and take care of customers.
All Woops! products are made by hand in our bakery, fast-frozen and shipped to our franchise locations across the United States. Kiosks receive pre-baked products that only need to be thawed — a very simple process.
Woops! macaron kiosks are succeeding in America’s malls
For the first-time entrepreneur, Woops! macaron kiosks boast not only a simple-to-run and quick-to-scale business model, but also the benefit of being luxurious signature features of malls that have high foot traffic. The kiosks were designed for both beauty and practicality, and the model has been successful in malls across America, where customers across every demographic are just as enthusiastic about French macarons as we are! Moreover, Woops! has developed relationships with five of the nation’s largest mall companies, which are chomping at the bit for Woops! to enter their marketplaces.
The Woops! executive team leverages those relationships on the behalf of our franchise owners to secure the best possible lease terms. For new franchise owners, this is a tremendous asset for two reasons: 1) new franchise owners get a potentially faster return on investment and 2) they get help navigating the tricky and complicated lease negotiation process. This means that new franchise owners can open quickly and focus on growing their businesses.
“We’ve tested our business model in several malls on the East Coast, and our success has fostered a deep relationship with mall developers, who just cannot wait for us to come to their malls,” says Raj Bhatt, CFO and co-founder. “Coming from a background that includes being a franchisee of an espresso bar franchise, I know how important it is to have a simplified business model that is easy to manage, is potentially profitable and is scalable. This is exactly what we have in the malls where we have macaron kiosks open. Not only do customers crave our delicious macarons, but these malls also have the foot traffic necessary to nurture a profitable business over the long term.”
