New business icing on cake for enthusiastic young owner
JARED Irwin has taken ownership of Bassy's Bakery at Emu Park and plans to drive it forward with excellent customer service, the best in quality produce and the help of his dedicated staff.
Having completed his trade as a baker and pastry Chef at O'Gradys Bakery in Yeppoon, Mr Irwin has travelled to improve and expand his skills and has brought them back to his home on the Capricorn Coast.
Mr Irwin said he came home and began work at Bassy's Bakery 18 months ago before former owners Gary and Karen Searle expressed a desire to retire from the business.
"This was an opportunity too good to pass up,” he said.
"The business already provides quality products which opens the door to introduce an even better range to all the customers' favourites.
"We will continue to produce high quality freshly baked bread, delicious cakes, pies and pastries for our local customers, wholesale customers and charity events. We will also be listening to our customers as we introduce other quality products to cater to a broad range of tastes.
"I already have an amazing and dedicated staff here of locals along with my partner running the front of the shop, another qualified baker and an apprentice who are all passionate about doing the very best we can to provide the community with its needs.”
Mr Irwin and his staff are a young vibrant crew who are keen to listen to the feedback from customers.
He says his his team has a vision to take Bassy's forward and provide quality produce and service.
"We want to set an example and show other young people that they can work hard, take a chance and open or become involved in local businesses in this beautiful part of the world with the support of the local community and the many welcomed guests to our region,” he said.
"No doubt we will experience a few teething issues as we settle into the new ownership that began on September 30 but customers can be assured we will be working towards making Bassy's your favourite point of purchase for all your bakery needs and desires.
"We are happy to take special orders and look forward to hearing suggestions from our customers.”
Mr Irwin hopes to build the bakery up to employ more local people as the business grows.
