Bath Bakery has appointed a new sales manager so the bakery can continue to expand, the business says.

After almost trebling in size, the bakery has added Liz Cox to the team as sales manager.

Cox will now manage 10 of the company’s 14 bakery outlets throughout Bath and Somerset.

In three years, Bath Bakery has extended its retail offering from five to 14 shops.

Cox said: “Although the Bath Bakery brand has been around for almost 30 years it is only in recent times that the business has really taken off and expanded at such a rapid rate.

“This is a really exciting time for the business, which has a superb reputation for quality, and I’m really looking forward to helping Bath Bakery grow further."

Bath Bakery’s managing director Mark Slevin said: “With a background in business development and quality assurance, Liz is ideally placed to help us with our expansion and is a very important member of the management team here.”

Earlier this year, in response to rising customer demand, Bath Bakery launched Batch#5, a new range of gluten-free baked goods.
