A

dditional space can be a blessing
for a retailer. For Panadería La
Central, the extra space that
became available to the retail store three
years ago enabled the owners to expand
their product lines and services to create the
"very inviting atmosphere" of a bakery cafe.
Modern lighting and classic wooden tables
give customers a comfortable space to sit
down, relax and enjoy fresh bakery products
with a made-to-order beverage.
"Our sales have gone up more than
double," says owner Yolanda Chavez.
"We now offer more variety of cakes. We
expanded into drinks, including smoothies.
We serve breakfast sandwiches and lunch.
People are starting to recognize us more."
The advantage of operating a bakery cafe
is significant because customers have more
reasons to want to come to Panadería La
Central, which is located in the Phoenix
suburb of Avondale, Arizona. Founded in
2007, La Central has developed a wonderful
reputation for authentic Hispanic breads and
tres leches cakes. Now the bakery cafe attracts
customers who are seeking a place to sit
down for breakfast or lunch and enjoy coffee
or a smoothie, as well.
In addition, the extra space provided
La Central ample room to expand its cake
business beyond strictly custom-cake orders.
In the front of the retail store, an impressive
glass-enclosed cake case displays a wide
variety of decorated cakes and mini macaron

cookies that are ready for immediate sale.
The attractiveness of the colorful display
adds significantly to impulse sales.
"We have a little bit of everything now,"
Chavez says. "Adding the beverage business
is important because it gets very hot in the
summer here in Arizona. We attract a lot
more people to the bakery by offering cold
products such as shaved ice, smoothies and
fresh fruit parfaits. From the summer to the
winter, now we don't see a big difference in
total store sales."
The bakery cafe is an added attraction
for families who are shopping together and
looking for a place to sit down and eat.

"We have become a destination for
families," says Yasmin Chavez, Yolanda's
daughter. "It's a nice place for them to come
in during the day or at night and order bread
and cold drinks and coffee. They can spend
quality time together as a family. That's
important."
Yolanda is a big believer in keeping valued
traditions going, as well as modernizing your
operation to keep pace with the changing
times.
"I love to see younger people buy more
bread and cakes," she says. "We have a
Facebook and Instagram page where we
post photos of our newest breads and cakes.
That is a big part of how we are growing our
business."
Working closely with BakeMark helps
La Central develop new products that
customers will love because "people are
always looking for unique flavors and tastes,"
Yolanda says. "The products we get from
BakeMark are excellent, and we are always
looking to create new flavors. We are a
bakery, but not just any bakery. We want to
be known as the bakery with the best quality,
and you have to have the best quality for
customers all the time."
