Make Life Yummy with Independent Ownership

Shipley Store

Each Shipley Do-Nuts Business for Sale Is the Opportunity for Independent Business Ownership — with Lots of Help!

How to make the most out of Bakery Franchise for sale opportunities

Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy, and every year, well over 600,000 new ones open in the U.S. Unfortunately, only 50% of them will survive 5+ years. Independent ownership is a goal of lots of entrepreneurially-minded individuals, but many of them shy away from franchise opportunities because they think they won’t have the freedom to make decisions or set goals on their own. Actually, nothing could be further from the truth, especially when you partner with Shipley. Each Shipley Do-Nuts business for sale comes with endless opportunities to call the shots and make your bakery your own. Best of all, you can count on our ongoing support to help you make the most of our time-tested business model and robust industry, bettering your chances of success!

You’re the Boss

When you own and operate a Shipley Do-Nuts franchise, you’re the boss. You decide who to hire, who to promote, what days you’d like to work, and when to take time off for vacations, family matters, appointments, and more. Of course, at first, you’ll be very hands on as you grow your business and build on our already highly recognized name and reputation for wholesome goodness. But once your bakery is established and your trusted team is in place, you just might find you have more time for activities outside of work.

You can also look forward to the use of our time-tested business model to take a lot of the guesswork out of running your franchise. From hiring best practices to savvy marketing plans to solid vendor relationships, our systems and procedures make running your franchise far more efficient than it would be otherwise — and that can mean plenty of freedom and flexibility!

Grow Big — Or Not

Many of our franchisees are happy to stop at owning one Shipley Do-Nuts franchise, focusing all their energies on it and making it the very best it can be. Others have goals for more growth and see multi-unit ownership as their way of realizing that. Owning more than one Shipley franchise comes with lots of perks, like shared resources and more brand presence. When you decide to add another Shipley Do-Nuts business to your portfolio, you can count on our help finding and building out the perfect location, with the option of choosing from:

  • Free-standing locations
  • End-cap stores
  • Conversion of existing real estate
  • Non-Traditional locations

If you’ve got the ambition and the resources to grow your Shipley Do-Nuts bakery locations, we’re here to help!

Get Involved

Shipley Do-Nuts franchisees aren’t just small business owners; they’re very often business and community leaders, people who know the value of networking and integrating themselves fully into their cities or towns. Getting involved — spearheading local events, sponsoring school sports teams, organizing food drives, and more — all these efforts go a very long way toward building brand loyalty and are opportunities to make meaningful decisions about your work. You have the freedom to make a difference, and that can feel very good!
