We first flung open the doors to our Leamington Spa store in March 2016, with our first store in Leamington Spa, we started off as a team of 3 selling 30 bagels a day that were bought in from a local home baker each morning, being filled to order & sent out to the small amount of risk taking customers trying out a new food business on the high street. As word spread & our menu & products evolved, more & more people were coming through our doors each week. Our supplier couldn’t keep up with the demand & we began baking our own bagels in the middle of that summer.
We roll, boil & bake thousands of bagels, hundreds of doughnuts with homemade salted caramel, chocolate ganache, curds & compotes as well as filled brownies, topped cookies & pretty damn great coffee & ship out to our stores at 6 am daily!
As the business grew & we were selling more bagels, we needed to grow the team to expand the in-store operations as well as our production, establish wholesale routes & fulfil larger orders for offices & weddings & then finally, when we knew that there was scope for further growth BOOM!! Doughnuts… right in your face! We launched our line of fresh, filled & glazed doughnuts with some incredible flavours
Fast forward to today… We now bake all of our products ourselves, from our bakery based in Redditch, 7 days a week! We boil & bake thousands of bagels, hundreds of doughnuts, brownies & cookies, fresh each week & ship out to our stores at 6 am daily! Our original store in Leamington is firmly positioned on the high street, stores in Worcester, Cheltenham & our new brunch location The Steamhouse Depot. After successfully navigating through a pandemic, we move on to plans for further growth in the not too distant future… it’s an exciting time to be at TSHQ & we hugely appreciate the continued support from all of our customers across the outlets.
We’re looking forward to more exciting things to come through this year!!
