A German bakery brand trading in the UK as baked2Take has opened its first Scottish outlet in Aberdeen.
The fully self-service bakery and coffee shop has taken a 10 year lease at 253 Union Street.
Aberdeen-based property specialist FG Burnett acted on behalf of local investor Craigellen Assets in negotiating the lease for the 3,700sq ft unit.
FG Burnett surveyor David Henderson said yesterday the business was likely to benefit from recent projects, such as the Silver Fin and Capitol office developments, which are giving a new lease of life to the city centre.
He added: “We expect baked2Take to trade well, given the demand in this sector and added footfall at the west end of Union Street. “
Baked2Take Aberdeen operator Gillian Cooper said: “We will source locally where possible and produce food with an emphasis on freshness.
“Our range of products will cater for take-away, sit-in and business customers, and include freshly prepared sandwiches, baguettes, soups, salads, pastries, beverages and ice-cream.”
Baked2Take is the UK offshoot of Germany’s backWerk, which has traded more than 10 years and now has 300 stores across Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the Netherlands.
