While studying in Norway, college student Dan Sterling got his first taste of European bread. Sterling returned to the United States and graduated from Harvard Business School before starting his own company. But he never lost his love of bread, and after volunteering to help a local bakery with its accounting, he decided to launch a bakery of his own. He opened the first Breadsmith location in 1993, and the company began franchising in 1994.
The investment required to open a Breadsmith Franchise is between $217,500-$416,000. There is an initial franchise fee of $30,000 which grants you the license to run a business under the Breadsmith name.
