In fact, this store was Crumbl's highest-grossing opening out of the ~650 Crumbl locations that had opened up to that point in time. While the numbers have come back down to earth since its huge opening, it is still grossing around $180k per month and is one of Crumbl's best-performing stores.

The current owner will of course give the eventual buyer the opportunity to conduct extensive due diligence, including an in-depth review of the P&L statements, Balance Sheets and other reports. The seller will also provide access to bank statements, credit card reports, merchant accounts and all other necessary reports to verify and confirm all of the figures shown in the P&Ls above.

About the Market & Products

Crumbl franchising opportunities sold out nationwideCrumbl as a corporation has been absolutely killing it. Here is an excerpt from Crumbl's Franchising page on their corporate website:

"Since opening its doors five years ago, Crumbl has expanded to over 800+ bakeries in 49 states, making it the fastest-growing cookie company in the U.S."

Crumbl is widely known for their huge tasty cookies, weekly rotating menu, open-concept kitchens, large pink cookie boxes and their top-rated app (providing multiple ways to order cookies, including delivery, pickup, catering and shipping). The state of California (along with the entire United States) is already "sold out", meaning there are no additional franchise opportunities. The only way to own a Crumbl franchise in California is to purchase an existing store, as you have the opportunity to do by purchasing this business.

The Crumbl Cookies app in the Apple App Store has a 4.9-star rating after 2.6 million reviewsCrumbl considers itself a "cookie tech company", priding itself not only on their gourmet cookies but also on using technology (including the Crumbl Cookies app) to gather consumer data, syndicate information and streamline the ordering process for customers. The Crumbl Cookies app has a 4.9-star rating with about 2.6 million reviews in the Apple App Store. (The Android app has a 4.8-star rating with around 405k reviews.) Unlike most food & drink shops that struggle mightily to get their customers to download and use their app, Crumbl has been wildly successful in that endeavor.

The rotating weekly menu plays a key role in generating excitement about new (and returning) recipes, which continually bring past customers back in to the store (or purchasing cookies online for delivery).

All Crumbl operators pay a 7%-of-revenue royalty fee (together with a 3% national advertising fee, both of which are included in the P&L above). This fee entitles operators to use Crumbl's brand name and intellectual property, technology and software (including the app), website, recipes, Crumbl-branded boxes and specialty ingredients, and corporate direction, training and support.

Marketing & Advertising

In addition to the 7%-of-revenue royalty fee, Crumbl store operators also pay a 3%-of-revenue national marketing fee, which the Crumbl corporation uses for national marketing campaigns. These general advertising campaigns strengthen the brand image and increase brand awareness, benefiting each individual store. This cost is included in the P&L above on the 'Franchise Fees' line item. 

The 'Local Advertising Costs' line item in the P&L above shows additional advertising expenses the owner has incurred to do additional marketing locally.

As discussed above, the Crumbl app is incredibly beneficial to Crumbl store operators. Notifications about the new cookies available each week are automatically sent to every customer with the app, generating excitement and, more importantly, orders.

    Store Operations

    Picture of a baker moving baked cookies out of the oven onto a cooling rackThe Crumbl corporation provides extensive direction, training and support with day-to-day store operations. In fact, the buyer will need to complete a 1-week introductory training course before he/she is able to take over operations of the stores.

    Most of the ingredients for the cookies (along with certain paper goods and general kitchen supplies) are ordered from Sysco. Speciality ingredients (along with Crumbl-branded boxes, emulsions and tech equipment) are purchased directly from Crumbl. Brand-name candies and other ingredients are purchased from a third supplier (which will be disclosed during the due diligence phase).

    As discussed above, the Crumbl corporation handles all of the stores' technology, updates, websites, menu and recipes, and national marketing campaigns. This allows the owner to focus on day-to-day logistics and operations.

    The Sparks store has a manager, assistant manager, quality specialist, several shift leaders and around 25 bakers/general employees. Hourly wages range from $12.50 per hour up to around $16.50 per hour, with the manager salaried (plus incentives).
