Dublin Village Bakery- The Business

The basic items that are found in the Dublin Village Bakery are cakes, sticky buns, pies, rolls, and holiday specials. There are many other types of baked goods available. It is difficult to make a small bakery profitable. The Dublin Village Bakery is a local business, located on Route 313 in Dublin, PA.

The bakery has about 10-12 employees currently working. The bakery consists of approximately 1000 sq. feet of space. The hours that most employees work are from approximately 6:00 a.m. through 1:00 p.m. or 6:00 p.m.

The president of the business makes sure that everybody is doing their job as assigned. He also has to make sure that the equipment doesn't break down, he makes sure that all the food stays fresh, and basically keeps everything running and in order.

The largest order that this business ever had to take was for M.M.Seylar Annual Dinner - an order of about 100 pies, and 100 dozen dinner rolls.

Because some people are becoming more cautious of what they eat, it keeps the bakery from selling all the food needed to keep the business highly profitable. They are doing quite well at this point, so they are still in business.
