PAUL seeking UK franchisees for national roll out

The bakery chains will offer partners a choice of three different store models.

PAUL UK announced it is seeking franchise partners to roll-out its premium bakery brand nationally.

The 38-strong French artisan bakery chain will offer potential partners a choice of three distinct store models – café (1,500+ sq ft), express (500 to 800 sq ft) and kiosk (500 sq ft), for service stations and transport hubs, town and city centres as well as suburban villages.

PAUL UK said it provides franchisees with a national supply chain, economies of scale, and a flexible retail format to fit any location. All partners will also be fully supported throughout the entire set-up process, from training courses and help with recruitment, through to marketing and PR.

“Whilst we continue to grow the brand in London, we have also identified numerous national opportunities outside of the capital, which will be enabled predominantly, although not exclusively, by working with franchise partners. We are currently determining priority cities, but if approached by the right investors outside of these areas, we are open to having dialogue with them,” PAUL UK CEO Mark Hilton said in a media release.
