Your Journey to COBS Bread ownership

Training Calendar

New vs Existing Locations

You’ve got a couple options to explore when it comes to joining the COBS Bread network and buying your bakery. You might be in a new market where the choice is clear—you want to open a brand new COBS Bread bakery! Alternately, there may be an existing COBS Bread listed on our Available Bakeries  page that you might love.

Buy and open a new bakery

We’d love to help you set up shop in a fresh new location. To sweeten the deal, when you open a new bakery, there’s no initial franchise fee.

Approximately $150-250K liquid capital is required on a total investment between $650K-$750K + tax.

If you don’t quite qualify, we’d still like to hear from you as we may be able to help.

Contact us for more information on available franchise opportunities.

Buy an existing bakery

When someone has already laid out the groundwork and built a customer base, it can be the perfect time to jump in. COBS Bread has several established businesses for sale- just ask.

Total investment ranges from $300k to $1M with 30% being liquid capital.
