The Cornish Bakery has made a long-term investment in the new brand with improved facias and updated interiors. A positive response from customers has driven up sales with coffee sales growing significantly. The rebrand is also popular with landlords offering more opportunities for expansion.
GCW’s latest deals for the food retailer include a 1,200 sq ft store in Tintangel on a 10 year lease at £18,000 pa and a sixth shop in Birmingham’s NEC. The Cornish Bakery now operates 32 shops across the UK including outlets within the NEC and some M5 locations and plans to open another 12 over the next 18 months
GCW was first appointed by Pasty Presto in late 2012 to help drive its expansion plans. Founded in 1994, the first shop opened in Mevagissey, Cornwall selling high quality pasties. Following its success, the range was expanded to include high quality fresh pastries and gourmet coffee.
