How many employees does one need to operate a BACK FACTORY shop?
As a BACK FACTORY franchise partner, you can run your shop with three to ten employees. More than 15 employees may be required for bigger floor areas.
How much time is required between applying and actually starting my own BACK FACTORY shop?
After you submit your application and participate in a personal discussion at the franchise head office, you must familiarize yourself with the business during our “Baking days”. This is followed by concrete discussions and normally one more practical session. You are trained intensively after the financing and contract signing. We hand over your BACK FACTORY shop to you eventually. Depending on the financing process, it may take 3 to 5 months. If you are launching a new shop, the time required for the real estate search must also be considered.
