Uncle John’s Bakery to open new store!

Uncle John’s Bakery is delighted to announce the opening of its new store, larger premises and new baking unit. The launch will last all week beginning July 11- July 16 and all members of the Ghanaian community are invited to sample the delights and celebrate the grand opening with us. The Bakery will continue to offer freshly baked bread, cakes and snacks from their new facilities to distributors, independent stores, supermarkets and to loyal consumers who purchase in store.  “As the original family baker of Ghanaian sweet bread and other baked goods, our mission is to continue to deliver you fresh, authentic Ghanaian baked goods that bring you the home from home experience wherever you are in the world”, said managing director Sam Mensah.

Uncle John's BreadsThe company was established 20 years ago and is a family business at heart. Many Ghanaians would have grown up enjoying Uncle John’s delicious sweet bread and our constant mission has been to help Ghanaians feel closer to home. Within 3 years of operating the enterprise had outgrown a small shared baking unit and found a site in North London where we still baked onsite up until the recent expansion.

“Our new facilities will give us the space to increase our work flow, which will also give us the space for bigger machines. This will aid us in automating parts of production and enable us to cutUncle John's Chips (Chin Chin) costs. We have outgrown our old premises. With more space, the new premises will allow us to stock more products, fulfil larger orders, and ultimately share our special products with new and exciting customers” stated Mensah.

We invite you to join us at the launch. Many of you would have grown up enjoying our products and this is a fantastic opportunity to come and see just how much we’ve been able to grow in our 20 years of operating. We feel immense pride in the journey and how far we’ve come, and want the African community to feel a sense of this pride with us and join in the celebration. Without your help, support and custom over the years our success wouldn’t have been possible so we want to say thank you!

Uncle John's Bread starter rollsThe look of the new store has been modelled on that of a trendy, boutique coffee shop. It’s our belief that African food is under-represented in retail outlets and on menus and it’s our mission to increase its prominence. African food can penetrate the mainstream, and we want to be the pioneers of the movement. Our new upscale, trendy shop will help to shift attitudes towards African cuisine and make this possible. To celebrate this Uncle John’s are providing coffee for the first 30 customers each day, discounts on products, free samples, the first opportunity to taste new product lines and are running a raffle. So do pop in for some lunch or stop by for your morning coffee and get an authentic taste of Ghana right on your doorstep!
