Clark's Bakery Angus site

Dundee-based family bakery Clark’s has revealed plans to invest in two new stores, bringing its total shop-count to ten.

It is building a new site on Dundee’s Kingsway and has just had planning permission for its tenth shop, which will be in Fintry, Dundee.

Clark’s also recently opened its eighth shop in Arbroath, Angus, in August.

The 70-year-old third generation company has just been given planning permission for a £100,000 expansion of its bakery from the current 8,000 sq ft to 10,000 sq ft, to boost capacity.

Owner Jonathon Clark said he had moved the company from being a traditional bakery to offering more food to go such as salads.

All stores offer an electric vehicle local delivery service to reduce the carbon footprint and the environmental impact of deliveries.

He commented: “It is exciting to propose investment in this area which will create new jobs during an uncertain time for many.”
