“I started my business out of my kitchen and garage, traded 3 years at Artisan Markets in and around Manchester to gain experience and to see if there is a market for pretzels and German/ Bavarian bakery products.
I took the plunge in 2018 and opened my Bavarian Bakery shop in Bolton after being selected to take part in a BBC food program.Now, after over 2 1/2 years trading, I have 5 employee's (mix of full/part time), plus some occasional Bolton College students on work experience placement.
The business did very well over the pandemic, three-folded our business and I was able to pay off my business loan early and could now take out a salary, if I wish to do so. I never dreamt it would go so well. As larger customers start to find us and enquire about UK made pretzels, it’s now time to start thinking about next bigger steps.
My thanks to Business Bolton for believing in me when I was starting out"
