In its first few days, Canterbury’s newest bakery welcomed over 700 customers through its doors.
Located in St Dunstan’s, the outlet is the second Warren’s Bakery to open in Kent and has added eight local jobs to the local area. Another outlet will open in Burgate next week.
The oldest Cornish pasty maker in the world (and yes, they can prove it!) also offers breakfast goods, a range of breads, and freshly-made sandwiches.
Denis Gorzdanov, on behalf of the Canterbury team, said: “We are delighted to have opened our new bakery in St Dunstan’s Street and are looking forward to providing customers with our celebrated range of baked goods and confectionary as well as excellent service.”
Established in 1860, Warrens Bakery is the oldest bakery in Cornwall. At its heart lies a romance between two local families, the Harveys and the Warrens.
Miss Harvey, the daughter of the local St Just baker met Master Warren, the farmer’s son. While the Warrens farm provided the ingredients fresh from the fields, the Harveys made the pastry and baked the pasties.
Today the firm is a regular award winner including the British Pie Awards and World Pasty Championships for its vegan Thai pasty. Last year Warrens was also named the winner of the Craft Bakery Award at the Baking Industry Awards.
