The regional Braidwood Bakery is set to get a brand-new home—pending council approvals—by Christmas, after 89 years in its current spot.
The current bakery at 99 Wallace Street in the regional New South Wales town of Braidwood was first opened by the Leeson family in 1932, and purchased by current owner Keith Woodman in 2005.
Mr Woodman told About Regional the new premise—down the road at 87-91 Lascelles Street—will be a brand-new building with a larger cooking area, 10-times the amount of parking and an undercover area for patrons.
“The main street is getting busier and the only thing holding back the bakery’s growth is the parking,” he said.
With the move, he said hopes to grow the bakery team by 25 per cent.
