Top Wholesale Baker related questions
Bakers mostly learn from experience. Some have formal training from vocational or culinary schools, but numerous bakers worked in factories, restaurants or other establishments before putting up their own cake shop or wholesale bakery. If you are checking for quality, it’s better to ask about their previous work or reviews from completed tasks on our platform.
Yes! We highly encourage you to check with your Tasker if they have the necessary licences. Some already put their existing licences in their profiles. However, it won’t hurt to ask and double-check, especially since you are dealing with food. Licences and permits needed may vary depending on your location. You can check this on your local government website.
Most wholesale bakeries sell their cakes and pastries at a lower cost because they accept bulk orders. Their transactions have a higher value than retail sellers. This is how they remain profitable. It is also possible for a wholesale bakery to offer close to retail cost if you have special requests like ingredients that may be difficult to source or customised cupcakes.
Definitely! A wholesale baker can prepare as many baked goods as you need for your tea party. Your Tasker can also deliver as often as you prefer for your coffee shop. If your requests are more difficult, such as four dozen keto loaves, allocate some time for your Tasker to source ingredients and prepare your order.
A snack food and wholesale bakery usually do not have displays or staff to wait on customers. This is because large quantity orders are generally given in advance, and the bakers and staff prepare inside the kitchen. Once the orders are ready, they are then sent to the buyer. While there may be surpluses, these are not regular instances for them to put up a display. If you want to sample their menu, you can always arrange this with a Tasker.
Yes, there usually is. Since wholesale bakeries produce goods in large quantities, it may be difficult for them to accommodate an order for a few individuals. However, the minimum order may vary per bakeshop. You can ask your Tasker for their minimum order or extra costs for orders below the standard minimum.
What do wholesale baker services include?
Wholesale bakers differ from the usual baker we know because they commonly work in the kitchen, and their products go directly to the buyer. Bakeries like these provide cakes and pastries to restaurants, groceries, cafés and even events.
Here are a few things that you can order from a wholesale baker in your area:
A wholesale baker most likely made your favourite cake slice from the coffee shop in your block. Instead of baking several flavoured cakes daily, a coffee shop owner can order cakes from bigger bakeshops with more equipment to produce dozens of cheesecakes and chocolate cakes. These will then be sold as part of meals, ala carte or in slices to their customers who visit the shop or order the cakes for delivery.
Bread and pastries
Unless you are close to the area, the delicious freshly baked baguettes in your local grocery store most likely did not come from France but a wholesale bakery. It is possible, though, that there is no wholesale bakery in your immediate vicinity, so these pieces of bread are delivered early in the morning before the store opens. Don’t worry, though. Airtasker can still connect you to the nearest one, even if it is in the next town.
If you plan to open a restaurant but do not have baking experience, it may be best to order cakes from bakery wholesalers instead. This option may cost less instead of hiring an expert in-house or trying to learn the recipes yourself!
Aside from looking for a talented chef, party planners should also take into account desserts. It’s the last item served, so it leaves a lasting impression. Having a reliable wholesale baker to handle the catering and dessert display can make any event sweeter, both literally and figuratively.
This option is excellent for weddings and birthdays. A dessert spread may even make for a great welcoming treat for guests who arrived earlier. Hotels and buffet restaurants are also clients of wholesale bakers, especially those that serve various cuisines for their guests.
Other dessert options
A wholesale bakery can practically offer any dessert. While some have specialities like peanut butter brownies or matcha white chocolate cookies, it is possible to ask a Tasker if they can accommodate your order. As long as the number of orders made meets their minimum requirement, you may be able to get these items at a lower cost.
Even organisations with fundraisers order from wholesale bakers and deliver the desserts in smaller packs to buyers to generate income. This is an excellent idea for teenagers in schools learning about the basics of economics and business and charities trying to add to their budget. All they need is a good marketing plan in place and some repackaging supplies!
