Fat Profits in Steel-Framed Sweet Shops

The Sweet Smell of Success Found in Donut and Coffee Shops

Steel-framed buildings make ideal bakeries, donut shops, and coffee shops.  And there is no better time to cash in on a snack business than today.  Sales are high and the profit margin plump in sweet and coffee shops.

A Quick Look at the Snack Market

While requests for sugar-free and gluten-free goodies are on the rise, Americans still overwhelmingly choose to indulge their cravings for sugary sweets.  Consequently, coffee and snack shops really rake in the dough.  Look at the scope of the industry:

  • Last year in the U.S., coffeehouses and sweet shops generated $33.5 billion in sales.
  • 36 million Americans visit a coffeehouse each month.
  • 70% of U.S. adult consumers drink at least two cups of coffee per day.
  • The mark-up on coffee is much higher than on most food items— coffee prices in sweet shops are often four to five times the cost of actually producing the drink.
  • According to last year’s statistics, specialty coffees are experiencing especially high growth.
  • The 6,000-plus retail bakeries in the U.S. bring in revenues nearing $4 billion annually.
  • Americans consume 1.8 billion donuts every year.  Fancy donuts and pastries bring in even higher profits.
  • Donuts are one of the most profitable foods in the market today, second only to potatoes.

Why Steel-Framed Buildings Make the Best Snack Shops

Since rent is usually the largest portion of a snack shop’s expenses, constructing your own building in a great location provides a viable option.  Why pay rent when your shop can be an asset?  Steel-framed buildings offer distinct money-saving advantages for a snack or bakery owner, including:

  • Low cost-per-square foot
  • Fast, affordable construction
  • Built-in fire resistance
  • Terrific energy savings with top-grade insulation products
  • Unencumbered interiors for efficient layout
  • Quick and easy expansion
  • Extremely low maintenance
  • Great resale value
  • Lower insurance rates
