Becoming a franchisee
Considering a new career?
Bakers Delight franchisees come from a wide variety of backgrounds, but have a common goal. To start a new career as a part of Australia’s most successful bakery franchise.
Greg Wheeler owned a tyre franchise for many years, and began researching alternative franchise opportunities to start a new career and gain a new lease on life. A keen cyclist, Greg found the hours flexible and enjoys being a part of his community as the local baker.

Bakers Delight Franchisee - Yusuf Omar
A chef by trade, Yusuf worked in restaurants prior to working in the building and landscaping industry. Tired with inconsistency of his hours, and aware that manual labour wasn’t a long-term career option, Yusuf and his wife decided to look into buying a franchise.
After researching several franchises, Yusuf decided Bakers Delight offered the best franchising opportunity.
As Australia’s leading bakery franchise, Bakers Delight could teach Yusuf the skills to produce a staple product, offering a reliable income, and a healthy work/life balance.
Yusuf started his training at a Melbourne bakery, receiving support from other franchisees in the Bakers Delight network. Following his training, Yusuf purchased the Bakers Delight Karnibal Hub franchise located in Frankston, Victoria.
Baking is now in his blood, says Yusuf; “What I enjoy most about baking is producing great looking bread from scratch every day. When I walk away at the end of a baking shift, I am proud to put my name to what is displayed on the shelf. When you spend so much of your life at work, it’s vital to enjoy what you do.”
Becoming a Bakers Delight franchisee has provided Yusuf with the flexibility to provide for his family while also being there to pick up his kids from school.
I enjoy the freedom to do what I want during the day, which means being there for my kids and also going for a surf. As a franchisee and business owner, our family are also able to enjoy holidays when it suits us,” says Yusuf.
A Bakers Delight Franchise opportunity could be the start of a successful new career, take the first step in your journey!
