Our Story

When Italian-born Alessandro moved to Waiheke and  met Rochelle, we discovered a shared passion for baking,  so we decided to buy an existing bakery and turn it into something of our own.

Over the years Franco’s has developed a reputation for creating beautiful hand-crafted tarts, desserts and savouries.

Our goal is to provide customers with fresh, high quality baked goods. We use as much locally sourced produce as is available and always strive to keep our products affordable for everyone to enjoy.

We work hard every day to bring more exciting creations to the store.  


We bake all of our goods on site using top quality fresh ingredients. We offer a large variety at extremely good prices.

We also specialise in catering for groups large and small . Come in and see us for delicious sweet treats, pizza, focaccia and artisan breads.
