Cornish pasty maker Warrens will open a new store in Sutton Coldfield, its first venture outside its West Country heartland.

The new Warrens Bakery store, set to open on 16 February, is the latest addition to the new Mulberry Walk development in Mere Green, Sutton Coldfield. It will sell a range of craft products including fresh sandwiches, savouries, scones, artisan breads, cakes, sweet treats and, of course, Cornish pasties.

The new store will employ seven staff and brings Cornwall’s oldest bakery to the Midlands for the first time.

Warrens Bakery chairman Mark Sullivan said: “This is an extremely momentous occasion for all the team at Warrens Bakery. Last year we unveiled our first store in Bristol and we’re now set to open our first one outside the West Country.

“We are delighted to be expanding our portfolio across the country and this marks a tremendously exciting time for the business.”
