House of Bread Franchising has planned for responsible, managed growth by building a network of intelligent, hard-working and honest franchisees who enjoy making great bread and offering quality services.
The demographic area for a House of Bread Bakery should be a town with a population of at least 50,000 people within the city limits or an area with over 100,000 people within a five mile radius.
When serious franchise discussions begin, you will be furnished with a disclosure document. Generally, how fast you achieve your financial goals depends upon many variables but mostly it depends on you.

House of Bread is a retail micro-bread bakery with a deli concept on the side. We focus on using organic ingredients to produce the most delicious and nutritious bread ever. The three distinguishing factors that are attributable to the success of the concept are the milling of high protein organic wheat berries on the premise, an open production site and a huge sample board in order for people to be able to sample hot bread out of the oven.
Since 1996, we have been baking bread the way Grandma made it by hand, fresh, and naturally. We have recently converted to using 100% organic oats, grains and flours in our flagship San Luis Obispo House of Bread. Most of the franchisees have either introduced or are in the process of introducing an organic product line. Our products are all made from scratch using the finest and freshest ingredients including high-protein flour that is stone ground daily at each location, and certified chemical free.
