Excerpt: Bakery Trends

It used to be commonplace for every community to have at least one "mom and pop" bakery where consumers shopped for all their bread goods such as cakes, dinner rolls, Italian bread for pasta night, deserts, etc. In the last twenty years, grocery store chains Walmart, Costco and others have moved into these markets and have driven many full-service bakers out of business. Even before the economic crisis of 2008, a bakery decline was occurring for the last decade, driven in large part to increased competition in the full-service arena.

Smart entrepreneurs have adapted and responded to the market conditions by developing specialty niches that consumers seek. Cupcakes are just one niche within this market. Their rediscovery is due in part to the popularity of reality TV shows featuring cakes and cupcakes.

Trends that have emerged throughout the food industry such as premium ingredients, internationally influenced flavors and the slow food movement are creating a new breed of bakeries. Growth areas include:

Health

• organic
• heart healthy
• farm fresh
• allergen free

Global Awareness

• fair trade (chocolate)
• international and layering of exotic flavors
• green (locally produced)

Lifestyle

• quick and convenient (mobile vending)
• indulgent - premium gourmet
• grazing - unique treats offered by small operations conveniently located
