The basis of the BITE bakery café concept is the range of innovative products prepared in front of our guests, which our guests can enjoy in a modern environment with friendly service.
Our company won the main prize of the Count Széchenyi Family Foundation, which is awarded to hungarian buisnesses that are exemplary among local buisnesses.

We are constantly improving and updating our drinks and food, supplemented with seasonal products. During the summer we’re focused more on refreshing drinks like lemonade and iced coffe, during the winter we offer hot drinks and special coffees. With our innovative products, we try to move away from ordinary flavors, while at the same time maintaining natural, additive-free techniques.
Our recipes are easy to learn and do not require a degree in hospitality. Someone with a different specialty can easily make their dreams come true by learning the basics in a few weeks and getting a routine in their own café.
A number of people have asked us why there isn’t a BITE bakery café in certain cities, so in 2016 we started expanding the already mature concept as a franchise network.
If you’re interested in investing or starting a business, you’ve probably become familiar with the concept of a franchise, which provides the necessary foundations for a successful business. A good system provides elaborate know-how, shows directions, provides data, teaches techniques and recipes so that your business has the biggest chance for success.
In the background of our company, in addition to the developed franchise concept, there is also a strong parent company. Thermotechnika- Crown Cool company with its own developed machines, a national and Central-Eastern European repair network, as well as our own company supports the development of the BITE bakery café franchise with favorable machine purchase options.
The investment required to creating a BITE bakery café is around HUF 25-45 million net. This includes every part of the design, from the creation of the plan to the architectural, mechanical, and electrical conversion to the procurement of furniture, machines, visual elements, and tools. The investment amount largely depends on the condition and size of the property at the time of handover, the number of guest places, the design of the existing machinery and electrical network, parameters that are unknown until the agreement regarding the property. Taking into account the investment needs of our previously established stores, we can provide a more accurate estimate after getting to know the property.
The BITE bakery café concept can be successful in large cities, county seats, areas with high pedestrian traffic, and busy shopping centers. According to our experience, it is much easier to reach our guests around busy streets, squares and junctions. In terms of the size of the retail space, the smaller one is 30-70 m2 without preparation, the bigger one is 70-100 m2 with preparation, where the possibility of placing a terrace can be a serious advantage. The large street-front portal is important, where the production of well-known products in existing stores can be displayed and which is an integral part of the store’s attractive appearance.
The fee for joining the network is HUF 2,000,000 net. 5%+VAT royalty is payable monthly on net turnover. Marketing contribution of 2% + VAT to be paid monthly after net turnover, which amount is used entirely for the marketing activities of the network and the store.
