ONE of Llanelli’s best known businesses has opened a new shop in the seaside resort of Porthcawl.

Jenkins Bakery has opened the 28th in a chain of retail outlets covering a sizeable area in South Wales, from Bridgend in the east to Carmarthen in the west and north to Ystradgynlais in Powys.

“This is the third new shop we have opened in the last 12 months,” Jenkins Bakery Operations Director Russell Jenkins said.

“We are well known for having our roots as a family firm in Llanelli, but we will continue to expand our range of shops as and when we see fit.

“The John Street shop in Porthcawl is managed by Zoe Rees and is in a prime town centre location in the semi-pedestrianised precinct with plenty of car parking available nearby.

“It’s an exciting new location for all of us at Jenkins Bakery and we are looking forward to making friends with all our new customers in Porthcawl.”

The last 12 months has seen the Jenkins Bakery open a new flagship coffee shop at East Gate and a purpose-built new outlet in Portmead in Swansea.

Commercial Director, David Jenkins said: “We are delighted to be expanding once again.

“As a third-generation family business, we care passionately about what we do.

“We pride ourselves on being in touch with our customers and it is a hugely exciting time for us to be opening this new venture in Porthcawl.

“Our company history dates back to 1921, but we don’t plan on resting on our laurels.

“We have a proud tradition and reputation as a company, but we always have one eye on the future – and this new shop represents an investment in the future.”
