Bakers Delight

Mass Mahamoor Ltd

In 1980, Bakers Delight was founded by fourth generation baker and current CEOs Roger and Lesley Gillespie, together with Gary Stephenson. The first bakery was in Hawthorn, Melbourne and is still going strong today.

In 1988, the Gillespies owned 15 bakeries; quietly confident about their proven formula, they began to franchise these bakeries and by 1991, grew to 43 bakeries across Victoria. In the next two years, Bakers Delight expanded to 200 bakeries and just ten years later, 600. Today there are over 700 bakeries across three countries.

In 1991, the first franchise outside of Victoria was opened in Adelaide, South Australia. Just two years later Bakers Delight expanded to New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia. In 1995, Bakers Delight went international, opening bakeries in New Zealand. And, in 2003 saw expansion into Canada under the 'COBS Bread' brand.

The name 'Bakers Delight' originated from the belief that every baker should be delighted by the product they bake and that every customer should be delighted by the service they receive. This belief drives Bakers Delight's current day practices and culture.

Olaf's Artisan Bakery Cafe

Welcome to Olaf's Artisan Bakery Café in Mount Eden Village. Our Award winning bakery is in full view of the café, so while you dine with us, you can experience how Olaf, Nigel and Thomas make their European style breads from scratch.

Olaf is a German trained baker, pastry chef and chef, with over twenty years of baking experience in a wide range of establishments, from fine dining to first class catering, in Germany and New Zealand.

Olaf's real passion is for artisan bread. We make a range of traditional European breads from French Pain au Levain to German Vollkorn using only traditional techniques and natural ingredients. Long fermentation and skilful handling at every stage is the way we produce loaves with authentic European flavour, texture and crust. We do not use any flavourings, additives, preservatives or "bread improvers".

The result is a unique range of breads, which won 7 Awards at the New Zealand Bakery of the Year Award in 2012. Olaf's breads are the equal of any you will find in the true artisan bakeries of Europe.

You can watch Olaf and his bakers work, just the other side of the glass wall, but if you want to ask any questions or take a closer look feel free to, they love talking about their bread and are happy to give you pointers if you are a keen baker yourself.
