18th October Homestyle Bakery celebrated 25 years of business.
One of the most enjoyable and satisfying occasions in 2014 was being present at the 25th anniversary celebration of Homestyle Bakeries. The celebration was held in Toowoomba on the 18th October involving staff, suppliers and customers both past and present.
Homestyle Bake operates bakeries in Toowoomba and the Sunshine Coast and manufactures an extensive range of bakery products including breads, pies, cakes plus many other lines. Five semi-trailer loads are shipped each day to south east Queensland and northern NSW, as well as vendor deliveries to the Darling Downs region. They have grown from an employer of initially 7 to now well over 250 people.
It was a very interesting night listening to one of the founding directors Lindsay Weber recount their story of growth, acquisition and relocation of various production lines to support their growth over the 25 years. In many ways Homestyle Bake is as much a pioneer as a bakery as they search the globe to source equipment to meet today’s high production and strict food standards requirements.
Current Homestyle Directors Brett Pascoe, Lindsay Weber and David Nicoll.
“The evening recognised the successful journey that Homestyle Bake has taken and our customers, employees and business partners who have been instrumental in the growth of the business”, stated Homestyle Director Brett Pascoe . “ Our bakery may have grown but our founding values of business remain strong as exemplified in our long term partnership with Infoware Services.”
Infoware Services director Daryl Northfield commented “it is particularly pleasing to have been involved with Homestyle for 22 of their 25 years. Not too many businesses have that history with their IT company.” During the night, entertainment was provided by “Nigel the Magician”. It was Homestyle’s chance to work a bit of magic with Nigel making Daryl’s mobile phone disappear into a balloon.
