Queensland Bakers Delight bakeries were spared from flooding, but around 14 were impacted at some stage due to either power outages, accessibility or lack of ingredients.
The Ipswich Bakers Delight was closed for one morning due to a lack of ingredients but opened again the following afternoon.
“All of our major suppliers have gone to great lengths to ensure they are on track to continue to supply our bakeries,” a Bakers Delight spokesperson said.
There were only short delays in supply and Bakers Delight’s suppliers were able to service their requirements throughout the period.
A small team in Queensland drove the streets close to the river in the suburbs of Yeronga and West End in Brisbane on the Friday of the floods. Bakers Delight Macarthur Central, Mt Gravatt and Yeronga baked 500 six-packs of fresh-baked Bakers Delight Mini Cheese & Bacon Rolls to hand out to residents in clean-up mode.
The remaining product was delivered to the evacuation centre at the RNA showground which was housing approximately 700 residents that evening.
