CUSTOMERS made their feeling clear when Warrens Bakery opened the doors on its new Kenilworth store.
More than 1,500 pasties were sold during the Talisman Square store’s first four days – 870 of which were the craft bakery’s award-winning medium steak pasties.
Franchisee George Abuaita, said: “The response and feedback from our customers and visitors was very encouraging and we look forward to welcoming local residents to our store to enjoy our freshly baked products from Cornwall.”
Established in 1860, it is not only Cornwall’s oldest bakery’s pasties which have proved extremely popular in Kenilworth but also the sweet treats. Over 330 morning goods, including nearly 100 Belgium buns and more than 500 confectionary items flew out of the new store’s doors in the opening days.
Down the years Warrens Bakery has received a long list of accolades. Most recently the company was finalists in the Craft Business Award in the Baking Industry Awards 2015 and 2017, and also won a number of awards at the 2016 British Pie Awards and World Pasty Championships.
Jackie Dillon, franchise operations manager at Warrens Bakery, said: “We are thrilled to open our second store in the West Midlands in the beautiful town of Kenilworth.
“The store is another great addition to the Warrens Bakery brand and was truly welcomed by local residents. It is great to have customers coming in and telling us stories of their holidays to the south west and how they have enjoyed a Warrens Bakery pasty, now they are excited to be able to purchase our pasties in their home town of Kenilworth.”
The new store has created six jobs in the town.
