Choosing the right wholesale bakery supplier for your cafe can be a punishing task. There are so many variables to consider - taste, range, quality and dietary requirements.

When speaking with a few Foodbomb customers, they mentioned simplifying the process is key. Keep reading below for a few industry driven pointers to help you. 


STEP 1: ESTABLISH THE TYPE OF BAKERY ITEMS YOU WANT TO OFFER - 


When establishing the range you would like to offer, make sure it corresponds to the rest of the menu and your venue’s aesthetic. Are you going down the traditional route? If so, the range can include;

  • Croissants
  • Artisan breads
  • Muffins
  • Pies
  • Brownies


On the contrary, your cafe may have more of a niche offering, where you can offer; 

  • Dessert slices
  • Speciality breads (Pear and Raspberry bread/Mango & Coconut Bread)
  • Filo pastries
  • Biscuits

Potentially a mix of these types of wholesale bakery items is best, as it will give your will cafe a nice variety and will help you meet different dietary needs. 


STEP 2:  IMPROVE PRODUCT TURNOVER TIME

1. Organising samples from selected suppliers to see what is the most popular with your clientele.

2. Increase demand for inventory that is moving slow through a coffee + pastry morning deal. 

3. Review your business pricing strategy after a few runs of trialing different bakery products, and analyse what will lead to an overall increase in sales.

Something to consider if you’re not sure about how quickly the turnover time will be, look into a frozen wholesale bakery supplier and thaw or bake a couple of products depending on demand. Check out Foodlink or Fishboys in Sydney or Sealane in Melbourne. This will mean you’re able to reduce your wastage. 


STEP 3: HAVE A RELIABLE ORDERING SYSTEM
