Why Between Rounds?

Why a Bakery Café and Bagel Store Franchise

As a Between Rounds franchisee, you will operate retail bakery sandwich café locations as well as a manufacturing commissary in a protected territory.


Each retail location is a combination bakery café business, sandwich business and bagel shop business. This business diversity allows you to capture sales during breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as during off-peak hours when people want to come in and relax, have a coffee or meet some friends.


In addition, the manufacturing commissary allows you to build a vibrant wholesale business serving schools, businesses, convenience stores and other bulk purchasers of bagels. These sales create further brand awareness and demand in your local community and can add significantly to your bottom line.

* As disclosed in our April 30, 2014 FDD and based on the average gross sales volume of our 3 affiliate owned stores which have been in operation for at least 2 years and includes wholesale sales. There is no assurance, however, that you will do as well.
