As of September 1st, SJG Foods HQ is now located at 26/27 Mill Road, Great Yarmouth, NR31 0AA. Three weeks into the change of scenery and I am feeling more settled into my new space every day. The building, known as Beau Michaels, is home to myself and Mick who has a self contained barbershop on one side.
It’s amazing to think that just over a year ago I was selling my products at my first market (the carboot at Hoveton Village Hall). Here I am today with my very own premises and I’m so grateful and so proud.
Space to bake (and breathe)
I already feel at home. I’ve got two ovens (so double the capacity) and a larger mixer which can handle more dough and helps me to work more efficiently. Super importantly, a dishwasher too! Getting out of my home kitchen, I now feel like I have space to breathe. I’m finally in a place that can handle the volume I’m producing the scope to expand even further is definitely there.
I haven’t wanted to break my back by taking on more clients right at the start. I’m easing myself in to my new home and routines gently, which I think is a smart move! There has been a lot of interest already! Lots of people poking their head round the door to see what’s going on.
Come and buy artisan bread in Great Yarmouth every Saturday!
On Sunday 12th September I hosted a launch event/pop up in the shop. Lots of people turned up to support me and buy my products which was so exciting to see. With the success of the soft opening and the interest people have had so far, I am opening the shop every Saturday going forwards (all being well). You can find all the usual bits for sale: focaccia, loaves, bagels, rolls & chutneys. I am also going to be stocking cake and brownies by the slice, mixing up the flavours each week.
You can still pre-order anything from my menu for the days I’m baking for customers – currently Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday. Or just pop in on Saturdays from 10:00 to see what I’ve got available. The address is 26/27 Mill Road, Great Yarmouth, NR31 0AA and can be found at the bottom of the website and across all my socials!
Speaking of which, follow me on Facebook & Instagram to see regular updates on the shop opening and upcoming events.. Keep an eye out for the incoming Christmas menu & get excited for the most wonderful time of the year with me!
