Cost of Opening a Bakery

The cost of opening a bakery can range from $10,000 to $50,000. For those planning on opening an already established chain, costs can accumulate to hundreds of thousands of dollars. The one-time and continued costs of opening a bakery are required for creating a business plan, which can be thought of as the overall “road map” that owners follow while getting their new bakery off the ground. Understanding the startup and operating costs and accounting for any unexpected costs is a must for determining the prices of the baked goods and the salaries of the bakers.

Equipment Needed

Starting-a-bakery.com created a handy list of the typical appliances and items required to open a new bakery. Among these include:

  • One (1) or more ovens
  • Mixers of all kinds (electric, tabletop, floor)
  • Shelving for storing recently baked items
  • Packing supplies
  • Display items/bins
  • Pans, sheets, dough scrapers, mixing bowls, basic cutlery, and decorating equipment
  • Baking-specific clothing including aprons, hairnets, and hats
  • Food processor/chopper
  • Accounting software (or a hired accountant)

For aspiring bakery owners, no list compares to actually starting the opening process, as every situation will call for special tools or appliances that are not commonly found in generic lists. However, for initial budgeting, having a broad overview of the costliest appliances and tools can assist substantially during the creation of the business plan.
