There are two types of bakeries that are currently existing in the baking industry. Both the retail and commercial bakeries are constantly in competition with each other. Retail bakeries are more for the consumers who buy bread products for consumption in their homes. Commercial bakeries are more of a large-scale business, like bakeshops and malls.
Retail is more for the personal consumption of individuals and their families. The commercial is the gauge for resellers of the products to different household consumers. Although, the prices of commercial bakeries are lower compared to retailers. Consumers need to buy in bulk instead of just the consumption for them to use at home.
The mark-up on the prices of commercially produced baked items is almost halfway lower than retail mark-ups. The reason for this is the cost of production of each baked item. Those factories that cater for commercial bakeshops tend to cut the cost of production lower to cover more market area. Those factories that cater to retailers tend to have higher prices compared to commercial ones because they produced each item for consumer consumption.
The commercial bakeries are being considered by consumers to purchase the baked products they need. It is because of the great difference between the prices of commercial and retail stores. The only catch to it, is that, consumers need to buy more items compared to what they need. In the long run consumers save more to gain more with their money. Consumers of the present generation are wiser in their expenses on buying high quality baked-produce in the right price.
All commercial bakeries offer discounts for larger bulk purchases of the items they produce. It is in this manner they can entice more consumers to buy from them more often compared to retailers. Retailers are designated to small consuming groups than commercial. It is by word of mouth that the best from the industry is advertised and recommended to other consumers.
The annual, monthly and weekly reviews of these bakeries are important guides for all consumers. It will suggest the best buys found in the market. It will recommend the best companies which produces the best quality products in the right prices that are affordable to each individual. The reviews also serve as guide for baking companies to know what the consumers are looking forward for new items to come out in the market. Consumers should rely always on the reviews for guidance.
