Franchise Info

dolce desserts

Our founder took inspiration from the genuine, hearty cafés you find dotted around the hotspots of Europe, particularly in Italy, and wanted to bring home to the UK.

The aim from the very beginning has always been individual, personal and heart-warming. The result is Dolce Desserts and an embodiment of what vision, passion and hard work can achieve.

We pride ourselves on creating sweet delicacies, sourced with ingredients all around the world, that combine an array of flavours into something authentic, unique and decadent.

9 sites later we have blown past all our initial expectations and perfected the dessert store model and are now ready to share our secrets with you.  And share our desserts with the rest of the UK.

Our franchise opportunity

Created after nearly a decade of running our own successful dessert cafés and set up with the same attention to detail that went into creating our perfect desserts, the Dolce Dessert franchise opportunity has absolutely everything covered.

With a proven model over 9 sites, we have carefully curated a business process that has the potential for you to surpass even our success!

Dolce Desserts operates smaller outlets with a much lower investment level than the main players in this sector. It has a more ‘community feel’ about it, and has its own unique range of desserts, some of which you won’t find elsewhere; Overheads like rent, rates and staff are also much lower, reducing risk with a quicker ROI.

We have a flexible 5 format offering to suit all investment types:

  • Virtual model
  • Kiosk - Delivery and Takeaway only - £136,000
  • Express – Grab and Go; Cost: £136,000; ROI – 27 months
  • Cafe - Small Dessert Parlour 16 - 20 Seater; Cost: £155,000; ROI – 29 months
  • Restaurant - Large Dessert Parlour 50 seater; Cost: £172,000; ROI – 29 months

Just as our desserts are unique, we know that our franchisees are too. That’s why we don’t have a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Our franchise opportunity is designed to meet every aspiration, every community and every personality.

Our key USPs

  • Lower investment than any of the main players in this sector;
  • Smaller units with minimal rent and property costs, reducing risk to the buyer;
  • More of a community feel to the store with a beautiful soft design;
  • ROI 24 months;
  • For once in this sector, a different kind of menu offering,  with many innovative products;
