So, you've tried our cakes, but you want to know more. "Show me inside 280 Bakes HQ!!!" I hear you cry! Consider your request filled...
Well, we're incredibly local - if you're from Portishead or Bristol! Our HQ, where all the orders come into, is in Lawrence Weston, over near Avonmouth and the M5, just down the road from Blaise Castle. Lucky us!
280 Bakes started with one domestic oven in one woman's (our Louise) own kitchen, and that's where the business has grown from. All our bakers are based in Bristol, all baking from their own 280 Bakes (and soon to be Council) approved kitchens, and delivering all over the region.
Behind the scenes at 280 Bakes
Have you tried our award winning Fairtrade banana cakes yet? When the bananas are put into the mix, Louise puts the sticker from the peel on to her fridge in 280 Bakes HQ's kitchen, partly as a reminder to buy Fairtrade again, but also to celebrate how many Fairtrade banana cakes we've been making for you guys!
Throwback Note: See that old school 280 Bakes magnet? That's a relic from when the company first started up 22 months ago, testing the waters with cake porch sales! #CompanyHistory, or what!?
We hope you've enjoyed that mini tour of the 280 Bakes HQ kitchen. If you have any questions, feel free to ask away using the comments box below - we' love to hear from you.
