Banjo’s Bakery Café announces Gold Coast store

Tasmanian bakery chain Banjo’s Bakery Café has announced it’s heading north.

The chain is renowned for unusual pies creations such as spag bol, double cheeseburger and chicken parmi pies.

Work has begun on a site at Helensvale, on Queensland’s Gold Coast, which will be home to a drive-through Banjo’s Bakery store.

Company spokesperson Karen Ahern told The Gold Coast Bulletin that the company was excited to be opening on the Gold Coast, with the doors to the new business expected to open in mid-2024.

“The new bakery at Helensvale will offer the full range of exceptional baked goods including delicious pies, pastries, doughnuts, sandwiches and coffee, all available dine in or takeaway,” she said.

Banjo’s Bakery Café first opened in Tasmania in 1984, and now has more than 45 outlets across Australia. This will be the company’s first foray into the Gold Coast market, however, Ms Ahern said they were on the lookout for more sites across the city.

“As the Banjo’s network of stores continues to grow, we are always on the lookout for suitable sites and would love to have more stores on the Gold Coast in the future,” she said.

The news has been welcomed warmly by Gold coast citizens, with one telling The Gold Coast Bulletin they had been praying for years the Gold Coast would have it’s own Banjo’s.

“And now it’s finally coming,” they said.
