Spanish bakery Granier is to open a second UK site in Woolwich.

Due to open in November, the bakery will produce the artisan brand’s full range of breads and pastries as well as running a 40-cover café at 23 Powis Street.

Granier already runs over 270 bakeries in Spain and this UK site marks the beginning of a planned expansion programme in London, the company said.

David Parera, Granier’s expansion director, said: “Of the many options available to us in London, the Woolwich Arsenal Estate was the most exciting.

“It is a well-managed destination that benefits from the adjacent high quality residential properties developed and underway, and is set to receive a further boost with the opening of Crossrail.”
