Family run bakery Raise opened the doors of its first retail store last Friday. The bakery, which is situated on Church Road, may be its first retail store, however Raise Bakery has made a name for itself through years of working directly with retailers, wholesalers and airlines. Raise sells baked goods, sweet treats and desserts based on classic British baking techniques with an American twist.
Inspired by a recent trip to New York, managing director Jeremy Jacobs reveals that Raise Bakery is ‘very excited to be launching our delicious range of gourmet doughnuts’. As well as their delicious doughnuts, ice cream sandwiches and twenty varieties of brownies, Raise Bakery also offers a ‘create your own’ milkshake option whereby customers can choose to have their own unique milkshake blended with doughnuts, cupcakes or brownies. Gluten free, vegan and healthier options are also available!
Additionally, the store will feature a retail space that will be stocked with cake tins, tools and fondants for customers who want to recreate the experience at home. Jeremy Jacobs is excited about this element of the bakery; ‘Nothing like this exists, a place where customers can choose to pick up their sweet treats readymade, or buy the tools and ingredients to start from scratch. We are offering the people of Brighton and Hove something unique.’
Having opened their first retail store in response to customer requests, there is every indication that the popularity of Raise will grow. Baked from scratch at their factory in Worthing, their quality products use only natural ingredients free from preservatives, artificial flavours and colourings with no hydrogenated fats.
Raise Bakery has family at it centre. The company was started by Lindsay Jacobs and her son, Jeremy, whilst husband Trevor is the operations manager. Lindsay has been an avid baker from a young age and was taught by her Mum, Marjory. Together, with son Jeremy, they developed the company and continue to bring their products to life with her innovative recipes and flavour combinations.
Raise Bakery is now open and can be found at 100 Church Road, Hove.
