The Women’s Bakery model was developed to be relevant globally, beyond the reach of our own team. These bakeries can be powered by any group of women, anywhere. In the fall of 2018, The Women’s Bakery put that idea to test with its first franchise.
We packaged our processes, systems, and brand for use of franchisors in Namayemba, Uganda, under the umbrella of local NGO, AsOne Ministries. AsOne is responsible for daily management of the bakery, while our team provides ongoing support and oversight. We were on-site in Namayemba for training prior to launch, so that the women were ready for full-scale operations.
Today, the bakery is operational and thriving. Bread power is rising.
