  • What do I need to apply as a franchisee?

    The key to continuing the success of Woof Gang Bakery and maintaining our mission is selecting the right people to join our team as franchise owners. We have multiple franchise owners who have diverse backgrounds and business experiences. Many of our owners, however, were once Woof Gang Bakery customers who were attracted by the quality of our products, our vision of service, and our solid support infrastructure. A prospective franchisee must be willing to work hard, be committed to excellent customer service, be a team player with a drive to succeed, and control their own financial future.

    As we share our vision with others, we are looking for individuals who demonstrate the following:

    • High degree of personal integrity
    • Dedication to upholding the Woof Gang Bakery mission
    • Entrepreneurial spirit
    • Proven ability to motivate and train others
    • Devote full-time best efforts to the day-to-day operation of a Woof Gang Bakery store

    • Active community participant
  • Will I have to be involved in the business full-time?

    The franchisee's participation, supervision, and their full and exclusive time in daily store operations is essential to building their business. For all partnerships, we require the general partner to participate personally in the direct operation of their
    Woof Gang Bakery store.

  • What operational support does Woof Gang Bakery provide?

    When you are awarded a Woof Gang Bakery franchise, you can count on support from our corporate and regional support staff.

  • What type of training do you provide?

    Training is comprised of two components to prepare franchisees for the operation of their store.

    The first franchise training segment is an immersive session in Savannah, Georgia.

This in-store experience takes place throughout five different Woof Gang Bakery stores over a five day period.

    The second training section is completed at your new store location with a Woof Gang Bakery representative providing guidance and instruction.

  • Does Woof Gang Bakery help with marketing?

    We sure do! We understand the importance in creating awareness and building our brand image in each of the communities we serve.

Marketing supports these objectives by assisting franchise owners with implementing their own local advertising, marketing, print and promotions programs. New marketing tools and concepts are made available to our franchisees as they are developed.
