Bakery Houses - China - August 2015

The bakery houses market is a dynamic market. From simple bread products expanding to a variety of innovative product offerings, one area of considerable interest to bakery stores is the introduction of café and fast casual dining formats to break through the traditional self-service format and capitalise lifestyle elements. Consider how experiential consumption gives bakeries deeper meaning, bakery operators are increasingly seeking a wider food and drinks menu to incorporate seasonal and ethnic elements, and offering comfortable seating area to encourage visiting.”

– Esther Lau, Research Analyst

In this report we answer the key questions:

  • What are the key drivers and challenges in the Chinese bakery houses market?
  • What are the new product and service innovation trends for bakery shops in the Chinese market?
  • How can food and drinks offered by bakery chains be customised through the concept of light meals to appeal to young professional customers?
  • How can bakery chain brands further integrate lifestyle elements and interactive events as marketing differentiators?
Historically, the world of bakery products has been perceived to be one of low prices and lack of variety.
 
Bakery operators have begun to extend product lines to specifically aim at light food and drinks menus to alter perceptions that the category is quick snack-orientated. Since the introduction of artisanal bakery chains, the willingness to trade up for healthier and premium bakery products has been inextricably linked to the strong growth in the bakery houses market.
