Artisan bakery Muffin Break has opened for business at a new store in Redhill, Surrey.

The new store’s interior and exterior has a rustic, yet modern style and can provide seating for 65 customers, said the business, adding it will also create 11 new jobs.

Gemma Sandells, marketing manager for Muffin Break, said the company is ambitious and always striving for continued expansion in the UK.

“We are delighted to be opening a new store in Redhill,” she said. “Our menu is baked in-store, every day from scratch and this is what makes us stand out on the high street. We look forward to welcoming our new customers and to continue expanding our UK presence even further in 2017.”

The new store is part of a growing series of franchisee-owned artisan bakeries, which make a wide range of food options on-site daily, using fresh ingredients.

This month, Muffin Break launched its festive menu, which includes both sweet and savoury options.
