I’m Sylvia, welcome to Glenmore Bakery’s website.
I was born and have lived between the Quantocks and the edge of the coast all my life.
Since I was a young girl I’ve enjoyed cooking and baking and remember spending many hours in the kitchen with mum and my older sister Angie, whilst brother Stephen and dad was out on the farm.
When leaving school in 1985 catering collage was the obvious choice for me and I progressed into good jobs working my way up the ladder into management roles, so when my children were born they soon became very used to a working life.
Glenmore Café and Bakery was formed in 1997 and 6 weeks in I was asked to work one week to cover the head baker’s holiday; I loved it so much I never left. It was no surprise to anyone when in 2003 my husband Richard (better known as Dick), and I, bought it. Very soon it became a buzzing family business and in 2007 we opened our first shop in the centre of Minehead.
In 2009 we had outgrown our premises and so with the Bakery in mind we sold the Café and moved into a much bigger premise in Williton.
Since then we have not only grown our wholesale distribution service but opened two more shops in Minehead and Wiliton. We continue to pride ourselves on the homemade approach to baking, with no added extra additives or preservatives.
