One of the greatest benefits for franchisers in investing in the dessert industry is the variety. From cakes to ice cream, pies to gourmet pastries, chocolates and cookies and everything in between, there are options for every kind of owner and every kind of consumer. Our chocolate franchise offers what modern dessert consumers are looking for: the overall aesthetic experience of their treats, expecting unique flavor and texture options as well as social-media ready design. This makes room for bakers to be more innovative in their work.
At every point in the process from baker to consumer, the dessert industry offers excitement for everyone! Another benefit for dessert and chocolate franchises in the modern market is increased attention to simplification. More bakeries are working to streamline their processes in producing their product, making operating a store far simpler than in the past. The pre-and post-bake procedures have trended toward being more automated than in the past. This ensures quality and portion control, while also reducing waste and controlling costs. All of this has made bakeries safer, more affordable, less labor-intensive investments.
How Successful Has The Dessert Industry Been Recently?
A 2019 Datassential survey found that 93% of consumers had eaten a dessert in the past week with 55% having eaten one that day. Even with the pandemic, 2020 was a year of growth for most of the dessert industry, with cake leading the way with a 2.4% growth and an increased $1.5 billion profit as a result. Also showing growth have been private label options across the board, but especially in cakes and refrigerated cheesecakes.
What Are Current Trends In The Dessert Industry?
Some of the success of the dessert industry and chocolate franchises can be attributed to its evolution to the demands of modern consumers. In a health-conscious market, the dessert industry has responded by providing options that cater to specific dietary needs, including vegan, gluten-free, plant-based, soy-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free options (among others). Even health-conscious consumers want to indulge in a dessert — but when they do, they want it to be worth the calories!
This means that in addition to providing a wider range of ingredients in their sweets, the industry has also responded to the needs of the market by increasing attention to varied portion sizes, with more snackable dessert options available than in the past.
Another major trend in the market is increased demand for unique, exotic flavor options and combinations. In particular, it is anticipated that there will be exponential growth in the popularity of inclusions: adding a mix-in to change or enhance the flavor of an existing product with nuts, chocolate chips, fruit or other options. Consumers love to stretch their creative muscles as well, and experimenting with flavor and texture combinations has become a part of the dessert experience! More exotic and unique inclusions have also seen increased popularity, with younger consumers especially interested in trying something new. They see food as an experience, and the dessert industry is perfectly positioned to provide a culinary adventure.
