One of the most well -established and best-known businesses in South Wales has opened a new shop in the popular seaside resort of Porthcawl in the County Borough of Bridgend.
The new Jenkins Bakery shop in John Street is the 28th in a chain of retail outlets covering a sizeable area in South Wales, from Bridgend in the east to Carmarthen in the west and north to Ystradgynlais in Powys.
This is the third new shop we have opened in the last 12 months, Jenkins Bakery Operations Director Russell Jenkins proudly declared today.
We are well known for having our roots as a family firm in Llanelli, but we will continue to expand our range of shops as and when we see fit.
The John Street shop in Porthcawl is managed by Zoe Rees and is in a prime town centre location in the semi-pedestrianised precinct with plenty of car parking available nearby.
Its an exciting new location for all of us at Jenkins Bakery and we are looking forward to making friends with all our new customers in Porthcawl.
The last 12 months has seen the Jenkins Bakery open a new flagship coffee shop in the prestigious new East Gate development in Llanelli and a purpose-built new outlet in Portmead in Swansea.
David Jenkins, Commercial Director at the Llanelli-based business, said: We are delighted to be expanding once again.
As a third-generation family business, we care passionately about what we do. We pride ourselves on being in touch with our customers and it is a hugely exciting time for us to be opening this new venture in Porthcawl.
Our company history dates back to 1921, but we dont plan on resting on our laurels. We have a proud tradition and reputation as a company, but we always have one eye on the future and this new shop represents an investment in the future.
We are delighted to be bringing our quality products to a new range of customers in Porthcawl.
The Jenkins bakery employs 300 people, full and part-time, across 28 different stores in South Wales.
The company has the Gold Standard Welsh Food Hygiene Award and the Investors in People award.
The business employs 70 people at its Trostre HQ, while the Jenkins shop network stretches from Carmarthen to Bridgend. There are 14 shops in Carmarthenshire and even one as far afield as Powys.
