no, these franchises do not work in Germany because there is a bakery in every neighborhood already selling bread articles. Also, Germans prefer sweet breads or lightly salted products rather than savory. Slightly sweet is very German but I think anyone selling pretzels with chocolate or caramel on them might get arrested in Bavaria! Sorry to disappoint you.
All about Munich (München) and the state of Bavaria (Bayern), related cities and towns, culture, history, travel highlights and assistance, also up-to-date information and about future events like Oktoberfest 2007, exhibitions, fairs or concerts...
Any question generally about Germany or Europe too.
