GAIL's announced it will open its first neighbourhood bakery in Wilmslow in early 2023, with further locations in the North West to be announced in the new year.
The new bakery on Water Lane will serve GAIL's artisan sourdough breads, pastries, sandwiches, and cakes alongside its House Blend coffee.
Several of their products have won prestigious awards. In 2022, GAIL's was awarded fourteen Great Taste Awards by the Guild of Fine Foods, the most respected accreditation scheme for artisan and specialty food.
GAIL's believes in supporting local charities in their neighbourhoods. In 2021, it partnered with over 95 charities close to each bakery, donating surplus food to feed these communities.
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 wholesale craft bakery and grew the business organically. In 2005, the team opened its first high-street bakery in Hampstead.
Over the following six years they grew the business with top chefs and opened seven GAIL's retail bakeries in London. The business has since expanded outside of London in locations from Cambridge to Oxford and recently in Henley and Brentwood.
