Cornish pasty franchise Oggy Oggy, owned by New-quay-based Crantock Bakery, is

planning to establish another 15 to 20 shops this year.

Currently there are 10 company-owned stores in Devon and Cornwall and 25 franchise operations. The new outlets will be located nationwide and will either be take-away premises or a take-away with additional restaurant facilities.

Full support is given to all franchisees, including fitting-out of premises, sourcing of equipment and comprehensive training. The most recent Oggy Oggy outlet to open was in Glasgow.

Franchise director Paul Clark told British Baker that Oggy Oggy is currently in discussion with the owners of two bakery outlets looking to convert to the pasty franchise.

Frozen pasties baked by Crantock Bakery are delivered to franchise premises weekly for bake-off. Shops also sell made-to-order baguettes, jacket potatoes, soups and coffee.
