Based on Stone Business Park, Stone Baked – not linked to the cafe of the same name – are once again adapting their business to deliver breakfast and lunch orders to people in the town centre.
Before we go on let me give you a brief history lesson as this could get confusing!
Stone Baked was founded in 2013, taking over the former High Street store occupied by Hammersley’s bakery, with the goal of bringing real baking back to Stone High Street. After extensive work to the shop, the bakery ovens were put back in and onsite baking rose once again, much like the loaves of bread they were producing!
After a period of trading on the High Street, the bakery side outgrew the shop so in 2017 Stone Baked moved their bakery operation and switched to a more wholesale operation on Stone Business Park. The High Street operation was sold on – becoming Stone Baked Cafe, a stand-alone independent business continuing to serve the visitors to Stone High Street. However, following lockdown and tightened Covid-19 restrictions, Stone Baked Cafe ceased operating in the High Street for the time being.
The Stone Baked operation on Stone Business Park had continued to evolve, creating and expanding to provide a sandwich van service to Stone Business Parks as well as rounds out at Stafford. With people moving to work from home, these business parks are no longer as busy as they once where so Stone Baked is once again rising to the challenge, this time to provide a delivery service directly into the town centre.
Stone Baked are now delivering your old favourites to Stone every weekday with an extensive range of bespoke, homemade fresh sandwiches, breakfast baps, baguettes, wraps salads, pasta pots, lobby, hot savouries and wholesome cooked meals, as well as crisps, chocolate and drinks!
Tina Clare from Stone Baked told A Little Bit of Stone:
“I had an amazing day on Wednesday, giving leaflets out, talking to many of the other independent businesses owners.
You’ve got to be nimble, light on your feet and adaptable to stand the test of time and navigate your way through Covid and Brexit in one year!!”
