Does Woops! Franchise?
Woops! is a cookie franchise that has been in business since 2012. This newcomer to the bakery franchise industry has expanded quickly - there are currently more than 40 Woops! macaron kiosks or cafes nationwide. The brand has received recent recognition for its product and franchise model, but Le Macaron, the original French bakery franchise, has ruled this industry niche for more than a decade.
What is Woops!?
Woops! is a bakery franchise that offers customers 15+ macaron flavors, boxed sweets designed for events and gifts, and various other sweet treats. The business began in New York City - very far from the macaron’s French roots - and now offers franchise locations around the USA.
Woops! Franchise Info
While Woops! has developed an aesthetically pleasing concept and attracted a younger crowd via social media and Instagram, the brand as a whole doesn’t hold up well to the traditional concept of French macarons. The products offered by Woops franchise are also notoriously expensive, with some gift boxes costing upwards of $300. Countless Yelp! reviews discuss “horrible experience[s]” at Woops! - bad tasting products, flies on the cookies, and poor customer services. It seems as though the fun, bright image on the Woops! Instagram is not very reflective of the true product. As your product is your number one selling point as a bakery Franchise Owner, entrepreneurs looking for success would do best with another option.
Woops! Franchise Requirements
All entrepreneurs that wish to open a Woops! macaron kiosk or bakery franchise cafe must have a net worth of $200K - $400K and a liquid net worth of $50K - $150K. Woops franchise prefers mall locations for its kiosks, meaning that Franchise Owners will have to pay an additional monthly rent to the mall
