That's it! No crazy overhead costs and teams of staff members to worry about. It's SIMPLE!

We keep things budget friendly...


- Cost of goods is significantly lower than most food industry businesses. We keep it around 15%!- Less staff means lower payroll!- A small retail storefront means much lower overhead costs.- Startup costs are as low as $129K!

Answers to FAQ

- Sq footage required: 1000 sq ft
- Required Liquid Assets: $100,000
- Required Net Worth: $300,000
- Early Stage Potential Gross: You can expect a minimum of $300,000-500,000 very early on with a 15-20% net profit margin, after the franchising fees. If you can get good at marketing for catering and large events, you can expect quite a bit more gross than that. We will help with national marketing campaigns, but local marketing is extremely effective.
- Franchise Fee: $25,000 (for the first 25 franchises only)
- Royalty Fee: 5% (for the first 25 franchises only)
- National Marketing Fee: 2%
- Upfront Cost Average: As low as ~$129,000 (as currently designed). If you decide to add a catering trailer/truck as an additional revenue stream, it would be a higher cost, but potentially more revenue. Our cinnamon rolls do great at large and/or high traffic events.
You'll see two different names that we use. Mrs. Powell's is the original store, but we are changing it to Lila Belle's as we expand. There are a lot of reasons for this that we can discuss in more detail if requested.We keep our storefronts simple by design. This not only minimizes cost, but also creates a calming atmosphere for our customers. Buildout costs for the storefronts should be minimal. We also use all electric appliances for our baking so no gas lines are required.
