CHESTERMERE, AB, Nov. 8, 2017 /CNW/ - COBS Bread will open its 100th Canadian bakery in Chestermere, AB at the end of November.
Since the bakery franchise's first opening in North Vancouver, BC in August, 2003, COBS Bread has opened bakeries throughout BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario.
"One of the strengths of this national network, and why we are hitting such a milestone, is due to the strong business systems we have in place," says Brad Bissonnette, VP of Marketing & Franchise Recruitment for COBS Bread. "COBS Bread has a strong commitment to building the brand through the financial health of our franchises, a strong commitment to customer experience and a focus on quality products."
COBS Bread has also been awarded the Franchisee's Choice Designation by the Canadian Franchise Association for seven consecutive years.
The franchise owners of the new bakery in Chestermere are locals Collin Nyberg and Bevin Bannister. "We were looking for the right opportunity to bring a business to the community and, selfishly, we thought of COBS Bread. We love the products, customer service and community involvement that COBS Bread is known for," says Nyberg. "We intend to work closely with our community and look forward to sharing high quality, healthier products with the families in Chestermere and surrounding area."
Bakery number 101 and 102 will follow shortly and open before the end of 2017 in Grande Prairie and Ottawa, respectively. COBS Bread will also be expanding into Manitoba in early 2018, opening in Winnipeg at St. Vital Square with a local franchisee.
COBS Bread Chestermere Station will open on November 29 with a day where all will be donated to local Town of Chestermere charitable initiative, Christmas with Dignity. The bakery is located at Chestermere Station at 102 - 100 Marina Drive.
