The bakery so far

Simon, along with many others, took up baking during the first lockdown in 2020. Baking bread at home was a passion project. Soon he was delivering bread locally and advertising on Facebook and Instagram. Simon quickly began supplying products in a variety of local restaurants and delis as well as delivering to customers. The bakery has been featured in local and UK media, including the EDP and Radio X. There is a view to expand to it’s own premises in the Great Yarmouth area in the near future. Future ideas are to add to the bakery menu and to include meal kits, recipe boxes and outside catering.
