We are delighted to announce that Bicester has become the next home for our award-winning traditional bakes. The new bakery, which officially opens on Wednesday 28th March at 10am, is located in Pioneer Square, Crown Walk and has created eight job opportunities for local residents. The new store, which is being opened in partnership with local businessman Robert Crompton, will not only showcase our range of artisan breads, pasties and sweet and savoury treats but also offer customers somewhere comfortable to sit down and relax whilst tucking into their mouth-watering delicacies.
Established in 1860 and with a rich heritage and array of hand-crafted sweet and savoury bakes, we are 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, we put a firm focus on provenance, hand crafted skill and innovation. The opening will mean Bicester residents won’t have to travel far to pick up a hand-crimped taste of our iconic pasties, often enjoyed during holidays by the coast.
Rachel Little, Marketing Manager at Warrens Bakery comments on the upcoming opening in Bicester: “We are delighted to be opening our 15th franchise store, this time in the thriving market town of Bicester. As the ‘oldest bakery in Cornwall’ and the ‘oldest Cornish Pasty maker in the World’, we look forward to welcoming local residents with our range of sweet and savoury pastries, artisan breads and cakes, not forgetting our iconic hand-crimped and freshly baked Cornish pasties. Launching in Spring, our Bicester store shall begin with the addition of products inspired from Around the World, offering customers the chance to try exclusive pasty flavours each for two weeks only throughout the season as well as a new mouth-watering range of delectable cakes and other sweet treats.”
Rachel adds: “Priding ourselves on innovation, we always look to please our customers with new additions to the usual flavourful favourites. Our plans to open up to 300 new stores over the next five years makes Bicester a great addition to the brand and we look forward to opening its doors on Wednesday 28th March.”
With over 150 years of baking experience, our hard work and dedication has seen acknowledgement as one of the UK’s leading craft bakeries. Most recently we 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 2018 British Pie Awards and World Pasty Championships.
We attribute our success not only to the provenance of our ingredients but also to our dedicated team. All of our baked goods are crafted with an enormous amount of care and attention to detail. Many of our products are still produced to traditional recipes and techniques.
