Santa Nata Franchise UK

Santa Nata is the premium bakery franchise opportunity featuring the world-famous Portuguese treat Pastel de Nata - crisp, flaky layers of pastry with a delicious, creamy egg-custard filling and a dusting of cinnamon.

A favourite snack for the Portuguese, these little tarts are usually eaten with an espresso at all times of the day.

Founded and operated by a Portuguese family that has been making pastels for 3 generations in Portugal, we only serve authentic and delicious Pastéis de Nata, made fresh throughout the day, every day, by our master pastry chefs.

Our Culture:

We value family, friends and community and our culture at Santa Nata reflects that. We want our guests to feel welcome, like they’ve stepped into our home, had a bite to eat with our family and left feeling like they’ve eaten somewhere special. Here, we want to take our guest on a journey to Portugal and into an authentic bakery, showcasing the theatre of the chefs at work, the ring of the bell to signal a new batch and the alluring aroma of freshly baked Nata.

Our Concept:

Santa Nata is a simple concept that can be easily taught to anyone with basic bakery skills. Once you are given the secret recipe and trained by Santa Nata to master the technique, you are halfway through success thanks to a: high profit margin, small locations and low operating costs, Santa Nata is proven to deliver spectacular returns in its own corporate and franchise locations.

Santa Nata has positioned itself as a premium branded fast-food product without the negative connotations of the industry – by using fresh, premium quality raw ingredients that are prepared daily on site in front of customers.

We offer a proven business formula combined with a turnkey business concept for those who want to enter this growing market.
