Popular bakery chain GAIL’s has confirmed that their second bakery in the North of England will open in the market town of Altrincham on Monday 27th March. The bakery will open on Shaw’s Road and will trade from 7am-7pm daily.

The new bakery will serve GAIL’s artisan sourdough breads, pastries, sandwiches, and cakes alongside its specialty House Blend coffee.

The opening of GAIL’s bakeries in the region reinforces its long-standing ties to the area following GAIL’s wholesale bakery which opened in Openshaw in 2017. It has since supplied high quality, artisan breads to some of the region’s top restaurants, cafés and hotels.

The new bakeries will create new careers for people in craft baking, specialty coffee and bakery management. GAIL’s believes in supporting local charities in their neighbourhoods. Their bakery in Openshaw has been supporting FareShare as well as local schools, presenting and teaching students about the benefit of healthier craft bread.

A newly established partnership with Manchester based EatWellMCR will allow the distribution of any surplus food to those in the region who need it most in Altrincham and surrounding neighbourhoods.

The bakery was started by Yael (Gail) Mejia in the early 1990’s serving top chefs and food venues. In 2003, Tom Molnar and a few friends joined Yael’s premium wholesale craft bakery and grew the business organically. The team moved all the baking under one roof in Hendon, north London, to provide a better shared workplace for the bakers and top standards of food safety. In 2005, the team opened its first high-street bakery in Hampstead to bring its chef-quality craft baking and craft principles to a wider audience.

GAIL’s will also be opening a new bakery on King Street in Manchester City Centre soon.
