Fast growing bakery group Two Magpies has made a further investment of UK£80k as it continues to expand with the opening of a new, central bakery in Walpole, UK.
Marking nine bakery/cafe sites across Norfolk and Suffolk, the company has grown ‘exponentially’ in the last few years. This latest investment will allow it to further increase its output volumes for further growth.
“We’ve been planning this move for some time and it will make a huge difference to operations,” said Steve Magnall, Owner and CEO, Two Magpies. “The new bakery will mean more space, more volume and a much greater control on output and efficiency across the production line. It will also reduce wasted miles as everything will be more centralised to serve our nine sites.”
The move was managed and overseen by Guy Watts, Head of Bakery and Production at Two Magpies Bakery. “The whole move has been plain sailing for the most part. So far we’ve relocated our Halesworth bakery unit into the new site and Darsham will follow in due course. It’s a substantial operation to move a whole bakery, but the new site gives us so much more scope for upscaling production,” Guy explained.
This year marks a busy year for the company, as it has opened two new Mini Magpie sites in Beccles and Wells-Next-The-Sea in the last six months. This latest change sets the business on course for further growth.
“We have big plans over the next few months with an exciting new Christmas range coming soon. Two Magpies Bakery Group is definitely one to watch,” Steve added.
Two Magpies Bakery operates nine bakery/cafes across Norfolk and Suffolk in Norwich, Blakeney, Holt, Wells-Next-The- Sea, Beccles, Darsham, Aldeburgh, Woodbridge and Southwold.
