How a Bakery Can Benefit From Using Self-Storage

There’s nothing quite like fresh, warm pastries, croissants, muffins, cakes, and bread. For some people, baked goods are more than just delicious, satisfying creations—they’re a business, brand, and lifestyle. If you or someone you know is in the bakery business, it might be a good option to utilize a storage facility for commercial self-storage purposes. Here at Jiffy Self-Storage, we offer a wide range of storage unit sizes and amenities so that you can utilize our facility for the betterment of your business. We understand what it takes to grow a business from the ground up and are dedicated to helping you save time, money, and effort. Read below to see some of the ways a Jiffy storage unit can help with your commercial needs and inventory management.

Inventory and Storage Management

It’s a fact that businesses and storefronts pay high rates for more retail space. Sometimes, the space being maintained at this rate isn’t even being maximized to the fullest potential. For example, why pay for more space only to keep hidden inventory and unused equipment in it? Ultimately, a retail area is much more expensive than warehouse space, so why would you share your main display sections with your inventory? Keeping your inventory separate from your display items is not only cost-effective, but a great way to keep organized and keep your main showroom from getting too cluttered or unappealing.

If you are a restaurant or bakery owner looking to manage your storage space and possibly choose an offsite location, keep in mind the many items that you will be able to keep in self-storage. This will create a cleaner, spacious environment for your customers and those who dine inside. Some items that you may want to consider storing are:

  • Kitchen equipment and non-perishables
  • Excess dishes
  • Seasonal décor and furniture
  • Business documents, transactions, and archives
    • Luckily for you, a Jiffy Self-Storage facility offers a convenient location at the corner of Highway 400 and 401 so that we’re accessible from whichever direction you’re headed. This means that you can easily manage your inventory to and from your business should you choose to rent a storage unit from us. This is another cost-effective reason to choose commercial self-storage for your growing business.

      Climate-Controlled Units

      Another incentive for your restaurant or bakery to utilize self-storage here at Jiffy is that we offer climate-controlled storage units, so that whatever you store remains in pristine condition. Extreme temperature shifts and fluctuations can cause detrimental changes to your precious items, such as furniture, art, and archives. Humidity can destroy metals, electronics, and business files. Remember to invest in a climate-controlled storage unit when looking to protect your items and inventory for the long term. It can be costly and disruptive to your business if you have to replace or restore items left in storage for a long period.

      High Security Levels

      Another advantage of commercial self-storage is the level of security and surveillance that comes with it. As a business owner, it’s important to leave your store or restaurant with the knowledge and peace of mind that your items will be safe. While no one expects to be a victim of theft, it’s a good idea to prepare for the worst. At Jiffy Self-Storage, our units come equipped with high levels and overlapping layers of security, such as cameras, lights, computer-controlled access systems, and alarms. Not only can we monitor any suspicious activity and who comes in and out of the facility, but our features also deter criminal activity to prevent theft altogether.

      Stores for Rent

      If you’re thinking of starting your own business or looking for retail/restaurant space, you’ve come to the right place. Jiffy Self-Storage offers budget-friendly retail stores for rent in a convenient location with all-inclusive and simple leases. Our retail spaces on Wilson Avenue ensure your growing business gets the exposure it needs: 40,000 cars pass by daily! Our plaza and units are well maintained, inviting, and easily accessible with visitor parking nearby. We can even combine storage units according to your needs and offer cheaper warehousing space attached to your retail unit. It’s a win-win situation for any business owner!

      Whether you are just starting out in the business world or are a seasoned entrepreneur, we have storage options to fit your budget and commercial needs. As a business owner, you want your bakery to be profitable while ensuring customers have the space they need to enjoy their experience in your store. Food is about creating these experiences, sharing joy, and giving your customers a treat they won’t soon forget.
