Exciting new Bakery, Coffee House, Pantry & Meeting Place for Rossett, Wrexham.

Humble & Whole Bakery is an exciting new social enterprise bakery, coffee house, pantry and meeting space set to open in the village of Rossett April 2024.

We've found the most incredible premises, and with future grant applications in the pipeline, we are excited to develop an amazing space for the community, and to help fund our social mission. We are completely 'floured' at the response we have had so far about our venture and cannot wait to share it with you all.

However, to get us off the ground and into service we need additional investment. The existing premises are unique to the village and will require extensive remodelling in order to offer a top notch bakery, coffee house and eatery experience. We want to make sure this is a sustainable business for the community in order to fund our social purpose.

Social purpose

The hospitality industry is changing and we want to take our business to new places, using our food voices to bring people together, support wellbeing, and enhance our local community. As a social business, 50% of the profits from trading will be used to fund our mission, with the other 50% invested straight back into the business to continue it's growth and sustainability.

The story around food, where it comes from, and how we nourish and support ourselves has changed dramatically since the introduction of conveinence food. We want to focus on putting food provenance, natural produce, and sustenance back at the heart of the community.

Humble & Whole seeks to address some of the issues regarding food poverty, personal isolation, and food waste by working with the community, including schools, to deliver a number of food wellness activities. These will be funded and supported through relevant grant applications, and through our profits as a social enterprise as an artisan bakery, coffee house, pantry and meeting place.

Why we are crowd funding

A decent loaf requires a lot of good quality equipment as well as the skilled hands that prepare it. We require the correct equipment to do this, as the existing kitchen at our premises does not meet these requirements. We are raising funds for:

  • A bakery oven & proover, dough rollers and stand mixers - essential items
  • To upgrade the electrical system in the building to ensure we can bake to maximum capacity and no-one misses out on a sourdough loaf
  • For a decent coffee machine and grinder so that the good people of Rossett can enjoy a proper cup of daily Joe
  • For a new gas burner and oven for our chef's table events and budding cookery school entrepreneurs
  • For general building renovations to make everything safe & accessible (and also pretty)
  • For front of house spaces to display our in house produced goods, and amazing produce from local suppliers
  • To kick start our apprenticeship programme in style
