STORY: Cornish Bakery to make Scottish debut

Cornish Bakery will make its Scottish debut later this year when it opens a 2,500 sq ft site at design village Caledonia Park.

The Caledonia Park location will form a vital part of the independent bakery’s store expansion, with eight new locations set to open over the UK in the next 12 months.

“Caledonia Park is the perfect location to launch our distinctive brand in Scotland, proving my mantra that bakery is the new coffee shop," comments Steve Grocutt, founder of Cornish Bakery.

"We are continually looking to increase our estate as one of the fastest growing, independent bakery brands in the UK, and we are looking forward to making our mark in Caledonia Park alongside an impressively strong retail line-up.”

Matthew Howard, head of asset management at Railpen, which announced the news adds: “As we look ahead to the future of Caledonia Park, one of our main priorities is to extend our F&B offer.

"We’ve experienced a wave of retail firsts over the last few months, such as Kate Spade New York and Animal, and we are keen to replicate this success within our culinary line-up.

"For outlet schemes to work successfully, the retail element must be matched with great F&B concepts that suit everyone’s needs.

"We are pleased to see the likes of Cornish Bakery choosing Caledonia Park to launch their Scottish debut site amongst a loyal and dedicated consumer base, as well as welcoming a classic brand, such as Lindt, that consumers around the UK know and love.”

Johnstone Property Consultants and Time Retail Partners acted for Caledonia Park. Four & Co acted for Cornish Bakery and Symes Retail Property acted for Lindt.
