Cornwall-based bakery-café chain Cornish Bakery has opened its 50th store in the UK and is set to launch five more outlets before the end of the year. 

The 50th location, in Whitby Harbour, Yorkshire, continues the company’s focus on high street locations and tourist hotspots with regular footfall. 

Founded in 1994, Cornish Bakery has also announced the locations for its next five stores, following its announcement in August 2022 to launch eight sites by July 2023, including its Scottish debut in Gretna Green. 

“Bringing our beautiful coffee and pastries to 50 locations is a milestone and we are looking forward to the next 50. Our teams are the ones that create the magic and I am extremely proud of what they have/are achieving. Next stops: Plymouth, Gretna Green, Bury St Edmunds, Truro and Bakewell,” said Stephen Evans-Wrobleski, Director of Commercial Operations, Cornish Bakery.

For its most recent reporting period, the 12 months ended 28 May 2021, the bakery-café chain achieved revenues of £11.7m ($126m). 

Bakery-cafés form an established part of the UK’s branded coffee shop market, which stands at over 9,500 outlets. World Coffee Portal forecasts the competitive food-focused segment of the market, which also includes Greggs, Gails, West Cornwall Pasty Co and Bakers + Baristas, to exceed 4,300 stores by 2026.
