Hello,
Well, I have started 3 artisan bakeries in south Florida. Being Executive baker in each one. We dominated the market everytime averaging 2-3 thousand pounds of hand cut ciabatta, and 2-3k pounds of sourdough, multigrain, Italian como, and flavored levains. Have worked with the famed Lupis Spanish deck, Bongard, and Tibelliti averaging 13-15 hour bake shifts. I sold my share of bakery 31/2 years ago and invested in a house in Orlando that hit bottom. I have been working in sales at Lexus but now I am ready to do it all over again. I have made contacts with former accounts and all are begging for decent bread. I am now currently looking for deck oven and location. As you well know a busy artisan bakery needs two world class bakers morning shift and baking shift. My baking shift use to make and bake all ciabatta, 100% poolish baguettes, and Italian breads, foccia. Day shift use to process all levain, sourdough, multigrain, sourrye etc. I have done both concepts just wholesale and with retail. Anyways currently looking for someone willing to invest with me and work as well and like I said many big accounts lined up already.
Best regards,
arby

I am very easy to deal with ideally 50/50, but if your capital is limited we can arrange percentage accordingly. Opening date is as soon as everything comes together.

Yes! This would be a great thread to follow! I'll never be the caliber of baker to ever open my own bakery (or would I want to) but to follow an adventure like this one would be better than a reality show on TV!


Please keep us posted!!

maybe we should each invest a tiny amount just to stay in the picture.

Frankly, Arbyg, London's a great city.  Maybe you should go for it.
