Babka will provide the finest quality bread,pastries and cakes in UK.

by Diana Cociu in Oxford, England, United Kingdom

The idea of opening a bakery came to my mind 6 years ago. I have made a commitment to myself that I will open a bakery which inspires and attracts people through not just exceptional products but through cultural values.I looked around and I asked myself how would I be able to make a difference in this industry.I started to think about my mother,when I was a little girl my mother used to bake in a type of oven made by herself from clay and bricks.She used to bake different shapes of bread and her creativity and passion for baking is something that  I inherited from her.I moved to Oxford 5 years ago and while I was studying Economics at Brookes University I had a part-time job in Hayfield Deli.I asked the owner for permission to use his oven to bake bread through the night and sell it in the morning and he accepted without hesitation.Since then,every single day of my life I have devoted it to improving my baking skills.I have gained £500 from the university given by the Enterprise Support Team in Brookes to continue with my business plan.I have also won a cake competition while I was in school.Then,I applied for a loan from Startup Direct and I have obtained £18,000.I have rented a unit in Chiltern Business Centre and I brought in an artisan oven,a mixer,racks,fridge,trays,tables.I have paid the rent and the deposit and now I want to form a team and to secure additional funding order to buy a pastry machine,a large fridge for sourdough.I will make this bakery work as a wholesale bakery.The biggest dream is to be able to rent a space where I can sell directly to people.This bakery has the potential to provide exceptional products,different,attractive.Moreover,it can grow and expand with a strong team behind guided by a clear vision and willingness to do great work.

Let's make 'Babka' happen
