The oldest bakery in Cornwall brings award-winning bakes to Wembley Park
Warrens Bakery is delighted to announce Wembley will be the next home for its award-winning traditional bakes. The new bakery, which officially opened on Thursday 24th May and is located in the UK’s greenest public building, Brent Civic Centre. The new takeaway store, which has created five jobs for local residents will showcase the artisan bakery’s range of breads, pasties and sweet and savoury treats.
Established in 1860, Warrens Bakery is proud to be the oldest bakery in Cornwall and recognised as the World’s oldest Cornish pasty maker. With the rise in popularity of craft baking, the premium bakery puts a firm focus on provenance, hand crafted skill and innovation whilst maintaining affordable prices.
Omar Changani and Tejas Patel, who are working in partnership with the Warrens Bakery team to open the new Brent Civic Centre store, comment: “We are extremely excited to be working with Warrens Bakery to bring their traditional, Cornish range of hand crafted bakes from the shores of St Just to Wembley. Warrens Bakery is recognised globally as the World’s oldest Cornish pasty maker and we are delighted to bring the authentic tastes of Cornwall to local Wembley residents.”
Chairman at Warrens Bakery, Mark Sullivan, adds: “We are thrilled to be bringing our range of sweet and savoury bakes to Wembley. The new store means local residents and workers will no longer have to travel very far to pick up a traditional taste of our iconic British bakes or enjoy a hot drink on-the-go. With over 150 years of baking experience, we have a growing range that caters for all taste buds. We look forward to greeting many more hungry customers and sharing our passion for craft baking with Wembley’s residents.”
The opening is part of wider plans for more stores not only in the region but also nationally, as Warrens Bakery looks to share the best of British craft baking with the nation. Since opening their first franchised store last year, the South West brand has experienced rapid growth and plans to open 750 new stores in the next five years. The Wembley store is the fourth to open in the capital joining Harrow, Ealing and Devonshire Row.
The arrival in Wembley coincides with their latest spring range of new bakes. Wembley workers and residents can be among the first to try the ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ limited-edition range of delicious pasties and sandwiches; all of which are inspired by family meal-time favourites from around the globe.
With over 150 years of baking experience, Warrens Bakery’s hard work and dedication has seen them acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading craft bakeries. Most recently they were finalists in the prestigious Craft Business Award in the Baking Industry Awards 2015 and 2017 and also won a haul of awards at the 2016 British Pie Awards and World Pasty Championships.
They attribute their success not only to the provenance of their ingredients but also to their dedicated team. All of their baked goods are crafted with an enormous amount of care and attention to detail. Many of their products are still produced using traditional recipes and techniques.
