2018 Market Analysis & Industry Outlook: Retail Bakeries

Overview: the U.S. Retail Bakeries Industry

Like many industries, retail bakeries see rising costs in fuel, health care, and other expenditures cut into their bottom line and increase the cost of doing business. However, there has been an uptick in demand, including trends such as cupcake stores and gluten-free baked goods.

Despite economic worries, the industry is expanding its customer base while other food service sectors continue to suffer. Consumers are now willing to spend moderately and demand high quality for their dollar; an equation for which retail bakeries are a solution. The most promising sector for the retail baking is cakes. Wedding cakes in particular are gaining ground as the economy rebounds.
