Canada’s largest bakery franchise, COBS Bread, is expanding into its sixth province with a bakery opening in Bedford, Nova Scotia next Thursday, February 6th. This is the franchise’s 123rd bakery in Canada.
The Bedford Place Mall bakery will be locally owned and operated by sister and brother team, Rebecca and Ben Cripps. “I am looking forward to bringing something new to my community,” says Rebecca Cripps. “I have been counting down the days to get into my own bakery!”
COBS Bread opened its first bakery in North Vancouver, BC in 2003. Expansion across the country over the last decade has been measured and deliberate, opening in locations with the right demographic mix and where they have found passionate franchisees to support and grow the COBS Bread brand.
“We are so thrilled to officially open in Atlantic Canada,” says Brad Bissonnette, VP of Marketing and Franchise Recruitment for COBS Bread. “We are looking forward to a strong opening and we are very excited that Rebecca and Ben will be bringing our fresh bread to the Bedford community.”
COBS Bread is well known for its scratch baking, range of traditional and artisan breads, as well as sweet and savoury treats such as scones, croissants, and danishes. In addition to baking fresh bread and treats all day every day, owners of all COBS Bread bakeries are actively involved in their local communities through the End of Day Giving program, which is a cornerstone of the COBS Bread brand. All unsold product at the end of the day is donated to local charities based on a pick-up schedule coordinated between the charity or community group and the bakery.
COBS Bread is located in Bedford Place Mall on Unit #490 1658 Bedford Highway. For more information, visit the local bakery page at www.cobsbread.com/local-bakery.
