Birds Bakery has unveiled plans for its 63rd store in the East Midlands – bringing its famous selection of baked family favourites to Teal Park in Netherfield, Nottingham.
The deal, brokered by FHP Property Consultants, will see Birds Bakery open a new 1,200 ft² store on the business park in early September, creating eight new jobs. Birds joins a number of household names on the expanding business park, situated off Colwick Loop Road, including Aldi. The site is also home to a new school and children’s day nursery.
Birds Bakery was founded in 1919 and has been providing sweet and savoury treats to families in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire ever since. Teal Park is the company’s 63rd in the region and 25th in Nottinghamshire, with stores also in Wollaton, Sherwood, Arnold, Mapperley, Clifton and the Victoria Centre. Last year, Birds launched its 62nd outlet, opening its doors on Melton Road in West Bridgford.
The new Teal Park store is due to open in early September and will feature the usual mix of Birds Bakery classics, including the Caramel Doughnut and Cream Puff, a hot food counter serving food on the go, including sausage and bacon cobs and rolls filled with the roast of the day, as well as a coffee offering from Nottingham’s own 200 Degrees. The unit will also have a small amount of in-store seating for those wanting to enjoy their purchases straightaway.
Commenting on the announcement, Mike Holling, sales and marketing director at Birds Bakery, said:
“Teal Park is an exciting new location for us and we’re looking forward to being part of a growing community. After the last few years, it’s great to see so many new businesses opening their doors in the area and we can’t wait to join them and, of course, welcome eight new people to the Birds team.
“We will be focusing our offering on food to go, with delicious, freshly made hot and filled rolls, savoury snacks and sweet treats. We will once again be partnering with 200 Degrees for our coffee offering, which has proven incredibly popular in many of our other stores and shows our commitment to working with other local businesses and suppliers.
“The new opening forms part of our expansion plans, with discussions about more new stores in other locations across the East Midlands already underway.”
