Star Baker Alex Gooch Kneads His Way To Success As Another Branch Rises In Cardiff Suburbs

Updated: Mar 24, 2022

The British baker of the year has set his sites on opening yet another Bakery in Cardiff's suburbs, Radyr. With the recent opening of his bakery and coffee shop, which saw queues forming down Cardiff's bustling Whitchurch Road, and the ongoing success of his small bakery, in Pontcanna's King's Yard, we are excited to see how Gooch will further shape Wales's baking scene.

With 14 years of success, with his first bakery rising in the quaint Welsh town of Hay On Wye. Gooch has continued expanding his vision. Providing products for over 120 different wholesalers including Waitrose and Waterloo tea. He sees this new branch as an opportunity to develop his brand even further.

“Wholesale is great but it ebbs and flows, you never really know what's happening from one day to the next. Whereas with this, you can plan what you're doing a bit more, and it’s also a great chance to be really creative every day.” Commented Gooch.

Gooch is focused on artisan baking, with all of his products just happening to be Vegan and all of his ingredients organically grown.

Expect only the finest sourdoughs, focaccia, pastries and many more specialities at the new branch set to open in May on Park Road in Radyr.
