A1 Bakery goes for a hat-trick

Falafel Pizza from A1 Bakery

Popular family-run Lebanese bakery A1 first opened in 1992 in Brunswick, Victoria. The bakery, which also conducts operations as a Middle Eastern grocer, has enjoyed high levels of success since then.

Elias Farah and brother-in-law Chafic Choueiry originally opened the first A1 with their wives Nadia and Noha, but now it is run by Elias and Nadia’s sons, Haikal, Anthony, and Daniel, otherwise known as the A1 Brothers.

Since opening, and the brilliant success that it brought with it, the bakery has expanded to a second location in Fairfield. Further to this, A1 recently announced that it will be opening a third location in Fitzroy later this year.

“We’ve been looking [for a new site] religiously for a year. This one caught our eye. It was a different feeling, so we had to sign the papers before it was too late,” Daniel told Broadsheet.

The new location is, in fact, where Tora Dumplings was previously located on Brunswick Street.

“Brunswick Street is full of great people, and it’s a great environment, so we knew it was going to be right,” Daniel said.

“It’ll be more of a takeaway business [than the original Brunswick store], but people can still grab a set as there’ll be around four or five tables.”

The new location will be offering all of the tasty Lebanese treats that A1 is known for—za’atar manoush (Lebanese pizzas), spinach and cheese triangles, falafel trays, and more—all baked on site.
