COBS Bread is part of one of the most successful franchise bakery networks in the world – Bakers Delight. An Australian owned company, Bakers Delight has been in operation for more than 30 years, with more than 700 bakeries across Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. Bakers Delight (trading as COBS Bread in Canada), Australia and New Zealand’s largest retail bakery business was established in 1980 as a single bakery on Glenferrie Road in the Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn. The founders of that bakery, fourth generation baker Roger Gillespie and his wife Lesley have since grown the company into one of Australia’s most successful and celebrated retail operations.
COBS Bread was launched in Canada on November 13, 2003, with the first location in Edgemont Village in North Vancouver. The family owned business has since grown to more than 75 bakeries and more than 55 franchised bakeries across three Canadian Provinces.
